I've had that virus before and my anti-virus wouldn't pick it up, so I took care of it myself.
You might try this, it worked for me. YMMV, though.
First go into task manager, look for the running process and narrow it down to the suspect process(es) .exe.
Next go into windows explorer search for the suspected process, (make sure hidden files are unhidden) and search for part of the file name (not the
exact name because usually they will copy themselves, i.e. virus232 to virus 233) once you find it (or them), don't delete it, but rename them to
something different and then after renaming them, move the file to a different folder.
Once that is done, go to the task manager and end the process(es) then go to msconfig and un-check them for start up. Now delete the moved files and
you should be good.
If you can't delete them before you restart, try it after restarting. No promises that this will work but it's worth a shot as long as you know what
processes are and aren't legit, so be careful what you modify.
Whoop, too late.
I'll leave that for anyone else who might have the same problem.
