Here are some free online virus scanners...


See if any of them can get rid of it.

Failing that... try this.


Also ensure that you have system restore turned off while trying to get rid of the rootkill... (That's assuming your on Windows XP) by going into start - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore - system restore settings - tunr off system restore. Be sure to turn it back on when you're done though.
