These things happen always and you don't have a silver bullet for
these. If i were you i'd

Run with user rights for regular work
Have an updated anti-virus and run scheduled scans weekly
Update patches as and when applicable (Secunia PSI helps a lot)
Use CCcleaner & Spybot to perform periodic maintenance
Use Firefox with NoScript for general browsing requirements

This could go on but on a minimum you can use the points above.

about the nature and removal methods. Could any experts help?
