It's probabbly a virus, so you may already know the normal way to find it. Search for suspicious processes, use process explorer, that kind of stuff. If you can isolate what kind of virus it is you most likely will be able to manually delete it.

Ok, that pretty much SOUNDS virus. Check for oddly named processes, (ie 2a2r4534.exe, 24234578.exe,) processes associated to things you have never installed yourself, or multiple processes using legitimate Windows names (ie 12 svchost.exe). (Unless you have Linux)
