I also ran my antivirus scanner, which did NOT however identify this malware as a virus or shut it down. However, once I regained control of my computer, I activated Task Manager and shut down the process I could not identify (Bsy05V4MFLu7iT.exe). This shut down the malware.
A File Search on Bsy05 led to some very recently installed files, which I deleted. I also deleted everything associated with Bsy05V4MFLu7iT in my Registry Editor.
My computer now seems under control, and I can see my files although several icons are still missing from my desktop. The fact that using Task Manager to kill Bsy05V4MFLu7iT.exe shut down the malware suggests however that this is a good solution.
I also reported this incident as Internet crime to the FBI (http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
) because, as far as I know, it is a felony to install a virus on another person's computer. I pointed out very specifically that the program kept me from accessing my control panel, Task Manager, and most of my file system.
