My advice is to simply follow this link. If you scroll down the page there are all the removal instructions.http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.hllw.gaobot.az.html

Good Luck and don't forget to install the security updates as well..

DO NOT DELETE THOSE KEYS !?
(unless you want to delete some strings of applications that should not run and are found inside those keys)
