If you can download, download the following program and install it.

Startup Inspector
http://www.windowsstartup.com/

It gives you a way to control startup programs seperate from msconfig.

If you have Spybot Search and Destroy, it also has a startup control built into it.

Stop the malware from running and then utilize some or all of the following web based scans:

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner
http://www.kaspersky.com/service?chapter=161739400#betatest


Panda Activescan
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:
http://housecall-beta.trendmicro.com/en/st...orp.asp?id=scan

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx

online trojan scans here -

Windows Security Trojanscan
http://windowsecurity.com/trojanscan
See instructions for it here:
http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/trojanscan.asp

If the Startup Inspector can't stop it you may try the following:

Sysinternals Process Explorer
Freeware
