Unhappy How do I remove Strong Vault App from Windows 7?

I finally own a PC desktop after all these years of being an Apple consumer, and have not dealt with viruses, and now I really need someone's help with an infection...

I am running Windows 7 and Strong Vault has infected my computer. The only thing I've done so far is uninstall the Strong Vault Online Backup program I found, but there is still something called StrongVaultApp which shows up as a desktop icon. Where do I go from here? It's creating pop up windows for pages I visit and from what I've read, it'll get much worse. I'm suspicious of downloading any of the suggested malware removal programs I've found online and would truly appreciate your help. I definitely feel lost!!

Thanks for your help in advance.
