If you were using Windows XP, why don't you schedule a boot-time scanning?
If not, I suggest you use the avast! Virus Cleaner: http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclnr.exe

Wellcome to forums  ;)

Technical, the Cleaner is not a panacea. It is only able to kill very limited set of worms/viruses. Here's the list: http://www.avast.com/i_idt_171.html

Anything that is not on the list is not recognized.

Hope this explains it a bit.
