Hi trainee35

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

I suggest you run the Windows Live OneCare scan. Click on the Full Service Scan, in the centre of the page, allow the ActiveX control to install and follow the prompts. Then find something else to do for a couple of hours.
Let us know how it goes.

Good luck. Cheers

If this was found by your Anti-virus, then run it again, but in Safe Mode; allow it to attempt to quarantine the virus. If this does not work, then reply with the following information:
1. Which AV you are using.
2. The name of the virus (and any information your AV provides such as path, etc.).
3. The exact "error message" it provides.
If you find out from your AV scan that this is a variant of WUKILL
, then it be able to remove it once you disable system restore.
