This is a really good and thorough guide. However, you should only attempt manual removal of spyware and viruses if everything else fails. When removing manually you always risk deleting a wrong file or registry entry which can render your system unstable.
You can also try a free online scan, but ONLY do this from the website of well known company like Norton, ESET or such. Otherwise you will just run into more fake spyware removal like the WinPC Defender.
