reboot your computer, and when its at the boot screen quickly and repeatedly press the f8 key
In the menu that comes up select safe mode
while in safe mode your graphics will be temporarily distorted and internet and some applications wont work.
Run avg antivirus and all of your spyware detection utilities and delete anything that comes up.
After the successful deletion of the virus in safe mode you should be restored to your virus free state in regular mode.
Booting in safe mode will make it so that the active x controls that keep reinstalling the virus will be inactive allowing you to end it.
May i also reccomend spyware blaster.....handy little tool that disable plent of active x controls that viruses use to install them selves.
