Hello, in the past I've have found bleepingcomputer.com a huge help with getting rid of viruses but this time, I need some one on one help, please?

I have the windows recover virus. My system runs on Windows XP. And try as I might, I can't get rid of it. I have run over half a dozen anti-virus programs; rkill, hijackthis, malwarebytes, search and destroy, super antispyware, avenger, comodo anti-virus, doctor web cure-it and kaspersky anti-virus and the virus is still there. This virus has hidden most of my files (Everything under "All programs" is empty) and drivers (code 39 on cd burner and scanner). I've tried unhide.exe and that hasn't done anything. I ran CCcleaner and I read that I wasn't supposed to do that. (I hope I am mistaken.) Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Thank you so much for your time.

I am confused. Why was this topic moved? I know I am infected. I am still getting "price gong" pop ups. Please, tell me, what did I miss?
