    You might have to remove them by hand using phpmyadmin utility. You can also try my Threat Scan plugin at http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/threat-scan-plugin. This plugin looks deeply into the database and will tell you exactly which database records might be infected. It will also tell you if any of your themes or files is infected. There are many security scans in the WP plugins repository that might also help.

    It requires some experience and confidence to go messing with the database directly, so make sure that you backup your database before you do anything. The options Optimizer will allow you to remove options that look bad. If you backup your database, you might start by just deleting the options, if WP breaks you can go back and restore it. This is like a computer game. Save often. You may get killed at the next turn.
