Hello, I foolishly ran an .exe file that installed a virus on my desktop PC that will not let me run many forms of virus protection and spyware removal. The virus has defeated Hijackthis, hijackfree, Spybot, Malwarebytes, combofix, and AVG, and a few others even in safe mode. I have tried renaming the install files and the exe files to no avail. So at this point I cannot even post a logfile.

AntiVira will run but cannot seem to remove the virus, additionally I have run ATF cleaner and Vundofix which ran successfully (Vundofix with zero detections.)

The desktop runs Windows XP Service Pack 3.

I have tried renaming the files and running all of the above programs renamed in Safe Mode. Additionally I have used TrendMicro's House Call

I can access the internet, but the virus often redirects me away from sites such as this one. I have perused multiple forums and haven't found a fix yet. If anyone can help I would be deeply in their debt.
