OK, first thing you should be doing is telling us what is happening that makes you think you caught Badware.
What you got? Pop ups? Search engine Hijacks?
"Lagging" is vague and could be malware or the fact that you have not defraggled the hard drive since 1995. Which you haven't.
Give us some hints and we are more likely to be able to fix it.

malwarebytes, hands down the best free virus detection/removal software.

That may well be the case, but we have nothing to go on at this point, therefore no idea what we are supposed to be fixing.

I get svchost.exe taking up way too much RAM and things pop up in a new window now when they never did before.
My AVG seems to be a huge RAM hog actually, is it perhaps since the 9.0 came out after dec 1st? I'm trying to upgrade to the new free as I type this.
I am just haveing my RAM taken up too much, abnormally. My PC is usally very fast
pentium 4 3.4ghz
128mg video card nvidia 6600

AVG 9 seems to run more precesses while eating less ram.
So what is bad? What are we trying to fix here?

I am downloading and installing every program listed so far that I dont have already.
My pc usually reacts very fast but not now, there is lag between clicking on a process and having it happen, the lag time varies but it is more and more noticeable and problematic.
Sometimes it freezes and AVG was running a scan today that has been going for like 5 hours............

You still didn't answer the question.
What makes you think you got badware?
When did you last reboot? etc etc
This could be about a million things.
