Yeah, I use superantispyware and avast, and I was hoping to try something else to remove this stupid virus, but I've just gone and reinstalled. BUT! I was able to "trick" spybot into scanning another drive, at least I think I did. Here's how, see what you think:
1) Change to advanced mode
2) Click on the Settings tab
3) Click on the directories button
4) Right-click the white space and Add a directory, or in other words the other drive
5) Make sure to check "Check sub-directories of the above"
It'll then go and scan your main hard drive, and then at the end of the scan when it seems finished, it'll just sit there for however long scanning the other drive. The drive I did took like 30 min to scan so be patient and it DID find a few things. Not sure how effective this method is, but what the heck....don't have much to lose when you can't even boot the infected computer.
