The title pretty much descibes the problem.
I've been pondering either going through the steps to get rid of this nasty bug or, since this is a five year old desktop, simply go out and buy a new machine. The new machine probably makes sense, but it infuriates me that this infection caused that decision. While I figure what to do, I thought I'd say hi and thank BleepingComputer for having such a great site. If I decide to attack, I'll be posting all the details in the proper forum.
