I would download and install WinXP manager and run it's 1-click cleaner. It will delete junk files in the temp directories and every other folder, some of these can still have the virus. It will also get rid of unused/bogus registry entries, which can also reinstall that virus.

FYI, if you have HP software installed, delete it because every PC i use this in always causes problems with HP software - usually the HP Imagezone software that comes with their photo printers, etc.

On the other hand, i ran the smitfraud fix and it's finally gone..... and possibly super anti-spyware after this.

It did you right as well I see :) Good to hear. I would also recommend Super Anti-Spyware. I carry SmitFraudFix, Super Anti-Spyware, Spybot, Avast, Hijackthis, and Killbox; on a USB drive (for occasions just like these)
