Try Trend Micro's Housecall:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/houseca ... t_corp.asp

Housecall often finds things that popular AV programs miss.

Select your location and click go. If you have never used Trend Micro's online scanner before, you will have to install their active X component. After that is finished installing, the update engine and pattern file will begin downloading. If you are on a dialup connection, this will take several minutes but it's well worth the wait.

Hmm. I haven't found anything useful about that virus yet. I was hoping Housecall would clean it.

What files are infected?

Do you know what file(s) are infected?

In the mean time, download Hijack This, run it, scan and post a log here. I have to go to bed right now but if you haven't fixed the problem by the time I'm back, I'll look at the log and see if it can be removed manually. Try to figure what files are bad.

Glad you worked it out.

Actually, Spybot S&D is a great program. It's not really designed for worm/virus removal. Also, what one program misses another might catch. There is no program as far as I know that removes everything.
