Spycrush virus - Help Please!

I have got this stupid spycrush thing in my tool-bar that seems to have downloaded itself. Does anyone know of a FREE programme which will remove it? I have tried loads of stuff but AVG says it can't and all the ones I download say I need to register and pay once the virus has been found .

Can anyone suggest a way of getting rid of it without wiping the system or paying. As the pop up thing in the toolbar is really irritating.

Cheers,

Sounds more like spyware to me. Download these

http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10122137.html

Also start using Firefox instead of IE.
