Try downloading a2 squared trojan scanner from www.emsisoft.com You will have to register the product but it is free and you don't get any hassle apart from an update e-mail every few months.

Works on any operating system and is constantly updated. Should solve your problem.

Good luck!

Is it a scanner or does it also delete the virus?

o.O why didnt you just do that in the first place?

And a question, how come it wouldnt delete when you went manually in and tryed?
Like what massage did it come up with or did it just keep coming back?

I was talking about it...I reformated and then recovered.

When I tried to delete it it would say that the drive is full or being used or something like that.

I didn't really screw up my computer, it didn't let me go into my task manager and my msconfig.
