    I just had it. Avast Pro removed three process files. You need to
    remove the antivirus xp 2008 directory and registry entries in safe mode
    and run a anti-virus scan in safe mode. Then, it also launched several
    other trojans. Search and Destroy did an excellent job on killing other
    ones. Look for a wininet.ini in your c:\windows directory. Open it.
    If its a name of the virus, delete the ini and reboot. It took me 4
    days to fight it off. I had UAC off. I turned UAC on and removed part
    of the files. Turned UAC off and went into safe mode and removed more
    with Trendmicro free scan, Avast Pro scan, and Search and Destroy.
    Also, disable system restore because they hide in it. Delete your temp
    file directories. Avast has one hiding in its temp file area.

    Hi,

    I've also been infected with this .. yeah through an email from
    microsoft.com .. should have been more alert I guess .. but anyway its way
    from fixed.

    I was able to disable the thing and delete part of it, but I think i've made
    things worse somehow becaues bits and pieces of it are still hanging on ...

    For example:

    My desktop has been replaced by an Anti-virus message that I can't shift.
    Also, I can no longer access my screen savers because when I go through
    control panel to set the screen saver I get this message "Your system
    administrator has disabled launching of the Display Settings Control Panel".
    So I can't change any settings ... Its also now prompting me for passwords
    every time i get an email .. JEEZ!!

    I'm having trouble installing the malware program that was recommended ...

    Can someone please put me in the right direction

    thanks in advance for any good advice...

    Be extremely careful about any email that claims or appears to look to be
    from Microsoft that has email attachments.
    There are a number of fake emails from admin (at) microsoft (dot) com
    MS never ever sends unsolicited items by email.

    On the rogue message, if still present, use press and hold ALT key, then
    press F4 function key to get it closed.

    Since it appears you have residual infection issues, let me suggest you get
    guided help.

    Read the topmost directions at one of the following forums
    and post your logs as required by that forum.
    Do NOT post your logs here on the MS newsgroups.
