Well i'm only considering leaving it there if it's not very serious or dangerous. If it is like you all are telling me though, then I will continue to attempt to remove it, I just don't know what to do with bleeping computer (since I've never done anything with them before), and don't always have the time to sit in front of the computer to fix it without interruption.

Please take a look at Bleeping Computers website and you will see how others get malware cleaned by them. You don't have to do it all in one sitting or at one time. They will tell you what programs to run when you first get to the site so that they can find out what malware you do have. You will post logs back to them and they will analyze the logs you give them. They will give you instructions to follow and you do what they tell you to do. If you have any problems you can ask for further instructions. They usually give you a day or two to reply back with what they asked you for. They are a very successful site in cleaning up a lot of malware if you follow their instructions and work with them. If you have a rootkit, it is a serious matter. If you try and fix it on your own and then go to them, they will not help you most likely. They have a set bunch of rules for you to follow. Some rootkits if that is what you do have can sometimes kill your computer if they are not cleaned the proper way. Your first step though should be to back up every thing that you would want to keep to a backup drive which isn't in the same computer.
Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.
