I've followed numerous steps posted on this board for removing this virus. Spyware Doctor, Avast, SDFix.exe, freefixer.exe have all been run. Hijackthis logs taken.

All control has been restored, but I still cant delete this file. Either via explorer.exe, nor unlocker.exe. Even under safe mode,it can't be deleted.
I've deleted its references in the registry. (Including beep.sys as well).

Below included is the latest hijackthis log.

I dont see any errant processes running. Zone Alarm is giving me no warnings.

Glad to hear the issue has been resolved and thank you for letting us know. As such I will close this thread.

Please note: The Avenger is a very powerful program, designed to remove highly persistent files and registry keys "under the guidance and supervision of an expert". Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
