Well here is a link with removal instructions but it sure looks like it is going to be a lot of work to do it manually.

What anti-virus program are you using? It is not a new virus by any means so most should be able to get rid of it.

Yeah, as far as I can tell McAfee is the only antivirus that deals with this at this time. If that is what you have installed I would suggest you run it in Safe Mode.

And then, whether successful or not, post a HijackThis log for us to look at. Assisting in manual removal is what HijackThis is for and will also help you get other junk off your system that doesn't need to be there. Please do this:

Click on the link below and follow the steps in that tutorial so you can get a log posted:
How to post a HijackThis Log

You can of course skip step 1. But be sure to follow all the other steps and use the links in the tutorial to:

1. Download the self-extracting HijackThis.
2. Open the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum to start a new Topic in that forum. It is important that you post your log into a new topic in that forum. If you have any problems here is a link again:

It may be a day or two before you get an answer. But it is also important that you not post again to the topic you started asking for help or wondering if you will get help or otherwise "bumping" your thread/topic. In order to work on a first come-first served basis, helpers look for the oldest topics with zero replies.

BUT, once you receive a reply, stay in the topic that you have started. Do not start another thread.

On another note, we don't do tech support by email. I removed your email link not only to protect you from getting spam, but also since you are infected you could be spreading viruses to anyone you email.

We always did feel the same

We just started from a different point of view
