Put those on your computer, update them, run them, and you should be fine.
Not that easy. The only good way to put it, is this one is a bitch and a half to remove, and seems to get by every single anti-virus.
This bugger is tricky. Best thing to do here is simply to cut your losses and save time and just re-format the computer after any needed data is backed up.
If you want to save yourself from that, be ready for at least five hours of work. You'll need to start by taking out your hard drive and plugging it into another computer to scan. Then delete the files you know are part of it, you have one listed, there is another that starts with a "d". Restart and scan again, making sure an anti-spyware goes over the drive.
Plug the hard drive back into your computer. On boot up, turn OFF system restore. This guy infects ALL restore points. Once system restore is off, run disk cleanup, then get CCleaner and run that. Update and run your anti-virus and anti-spyware program.
Repeat the above steps.
Once you've repeated the steps above that's pretty much all you can do. Depending on how bad you got infected, you may still have items missing from your start menu, and task manager may still be disabled, but the virus USUALLY is gone. You can turn system restore back on now.
As an additional note, DO NOT BUY the software the virus is trying to sell you. I've had a few customer's report that they did pull the stupid and buy it and the system worked for about two weeks, then it went to crap again.
Also to repeat myself, don't bother getting a different anti-virus. You name the anti-virus program and this thing has gone by it. The only system I have yet to see infected is one with NOD32, but I am not sure if that's just because it isn't as widely used as everything else or if it's actually stopping the thread.
