Your system is infected with a nasty variant of Virut (Virtob) / Virux, polymorphic file infectors with IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, .scr and script files (.PHP, .ASP, and .HTML), downloads more malicious files to your system, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. Virut has a number of bugs in its code, and as a result, when the virus creates infected files, it also creates non-functional files that are infected (corrupted) beyond repair. Virux is a more complex infector. In many cases the infected files cannot be deleted and anti-malware scanners cannot disinfect them properly. When disinfection is attempted, the files become corrupted and the system may become irreparable.contracted and spread by visiting remote, crack and keygen sites. These kind of sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware and an increasing source of system infection. Those who attempt to get software for free can end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and it cannot be repaired. When that happens there is nothing you can do besides reformatting and reinstalling the OS.
my laptop has a virus identified by Symantec as W32.Virut.U
Keygen and Crack Sites Distribute VIRUX and FakeAV
...warez and crack web pages are being used by cybercriminals as download sites for malware related to VIRUT and VIRUX. Searches for serial numbers, cracks, and even antivirus products like Trend Micro yield malcodes that come in the form of executables or self-extracting files...quick links in these sites also lead to malicious files. Ads and banners are also infection vectors...

Do you plan on going back to those same infected sites?
Is there no removal tool that can rid me of this virus in future?
