how do i remove Backdoor:Win32/Cycbot.B

I read another post with a similar problem (deathlok0000 posted on oct 16, 2010).

I was surfing sites with gemini graphics and clicked on one particular site (don't rememer the url). When I tried to "x" out of the site, something started to download & wouldn't let me close the brower. I did a control+alt+delete and closed IE completely. When I restarted Ie, MSE alerted me to "clean" my computer for it was at risk. It then performed a clean on my laptop (I'm running windows xp version 2002 seervice pack 3) & continued to find & remove the above mentioned item no matter how many times I scanned and rebooted.

When I still couldn't run IE, I did a system restore. Everything seems to be working ok & I am running a full scan now. Should I be worried? I am connected wirelessly via home network. My laptop, unfortunatly, holds my life & I would hate to lose everything. Should I perform the tasks suggested to the other poster? Do you have any suggestions? Please help....

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
