Default Infected Registry Key

My computer was bombarded a few days ago by many viruses and spyware. Using Avast, Spybot, and a scan from Windows I was able to get rid of everything except for a registry key, HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3674735715-4115592248-3405255764-1009\Software\Microsoft\aldd, which is infected with Virtumonde. Spybot keeps finding it but is unable to fix it, and I cannot delete it manually from the registry either-it keeps reappearing! Also, I keep getting a related pop up for Antispystorm software, presumably from this infection because its html code is from my WINDOWS/SYSTEM32. I have used a ton of different scanners from the internet, including Vondefix, and none of them have done anything. If anyone has any advice or can point me to a website that can help I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

schedule a boot-time scan of your spybot. there is such a provision there in it, you know.

Two weeks and no responses, I bet the boot-time scan fixed it.
