Buffer Overflow Problems at startup Help!!!

My computer has just recently had the analytic checks google virus. I seem to have gotten rid of it, but now every time I log on I get a message from McAfee that a buffer overflow was detected and blocked on my computer.

The process was C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe.

I have the SUPERAntiSpy ware system, Spybot - S&D, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and of course McAfee. They have all found a trojan all having tdss in the name. When I log on I get the buffer overflow message and all I see is the desktop background (not toolbar or icons). The only way I get it to work is to open task manager and run a new task such as Firefox or windows explorer. The overflows are annoying and I do not know how to get rid of them or if my computer is still infected with something. Any help?
