CA Virus detail of W32/Virut
The virus disables Windows File Protection by injecting code into the "winlogon.exe" process that patches system code in memory.
McAfee Risk Assessment and Overview of W32/Virut
The virus has a number of bugs in its code, and as a result it may misinfect a proportion of executable files....some W32/Virut.h infections are corrupted beyond repair.
AVG Overview of W32/VirutVirut is commonly spread via a flash drive (usb, pen, thumb, jump) infection using RUNDLL32.EXE and other malicious files. It is often contracted and spread by visiting remote, crack and keygen sites. These type of sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware and a major source of system infection.
There are bugs in the viral code. When the virus produces infected files, it also creates non-functional files that also contain the virus...Due to the damaged caused to files by virut it's possible to find repaired but corrupted files. They became corrupted by the incorrect writing of the viral code during the process of infection. undetected, corrupted files (possibly still containing part of the viral code) can also be found. this is caused by incorrectly written and non-function viral code present in these files.
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...

As a said Virut and Vitro are the same...different anti-virus vendors use different names.
I was only running AVG when I received a brief alert in the form of a bubble or popup alerting me to Win32:Vitru, as that's what I thought I had seen. However, the closest references I could find on the web was Win32:Vitro

After backing up and saving your data, you can try disinfection but it will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum[/b]. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a DDS log for further investigation.
I am reluctantly accepting the fact that my OS is unsalvageable.
