While doing a scan on my laptop using adaware, I keep getting the above malware even though I have deleted it completely. Anyone knows how to remove this thing completely from my laptop?

press window + r
type msconfig, click ok
go to Startup tab, search for Bore, bored, etc.. If you are not sure, look under the command column, and try to see if there's a single path that leads to c:\docume~1\locals~1\
uncheck that box
if you want to delete it manually, these are the additional steps:
click on the boot.ini tab, select safeboot, then restart
ignore the msconfig window that pops up
when windows load, go to your file explorer, click on tools, folder options. go to the view tab, and check "show all hidden files and folders"
then go to c:\documents and settings\your account name\my documents\application data\
try looking for weird folders.. the names are not always the same.. but some used are bore, bored, lop, etc. The folders would usually contain only exe files, or exe and .dll files.
when all is done, go back to your msconfig window, and go to the boot.ini tab. uncheck the safeboot thingy. Restart..
right, be sure to do a system restore point before you commence on the second part..
