I tried removing it in safe mode and that did not work either. I also installed avira antivirus and ran the scan, but it didnt detect the virus/worm.

Have you tried spybot to remove it, Ive google it and haven't found any other cases yet, the only thing I can find is a software program with the same name so I was thinking may be its like a bundled thing like that Win fix pop up that went round not so long ago, When that first came out I was using Mcafee and there AV told me it was virus and could not remove it yet there anytispyware did.
