Malwarebytes will work, and this is how. Open MSConFig and shut off everything in StartUp, then reboot. Disconnect your internet so that it doesn't talk with it's host. Start MalwareBytes and open the Task Manager. While MalwareBytes scans look in the Task Manager for anything that does not seem right. Look on the net on another PC (if you have one) for anything that you do not know should be running in the task manager. There may be bogus services running, for instance:

'lssas.exe' is a normal service that should be running, but once I also saw 'lssas_.exe' which is your virus in disguise.

There are a few things you can kill without doing harm except explorer.exe and a few others. You may have to run it more than once to find it all, but it will work.

Many have removed the malware using MBAM or Super Antispyware. The malware is constantly changing so one program may work one day and not the next.
Here is BC's suggested removal instructions.

http://www.superantispyware.com/ Does a better job of finding and removing malware while running scan in Safe Mode.
