Completely Get Rid of Win32:BHO-ALX[Trj]

Complaints about Win32:BHO-ALX[Trj]:
Avast automatically blocks it(Win32:BHO-ALX[Trj]). In the virus chest under name is is called IEOptimizer64.dll with the location C:Program Files (x86)\SavingsBull.

After running a full scan another item was added to the chest. Name is 6273be.msi. The original location is C:/Windows/Installer

I noticed another area in which it is in, but not picked up by avast C:\Program Files\SavingsbullFilter. **have tried deleting it, but won't allow me to**

I keep getting popups of it being blocked by avast and having more copies added to the chest.
Another thing is when it is blocked firefox will close out.
