    Thanks, saved me a lot of heartache. This monster of a virus did the following:

    1) Blocked Task Manager
    2) Changed proxy settings on browsers
    3) Reset the paths of other programs that you’d normally start up from the Start menu (e.g. cmd.exe)

    A nasty virus. Still recovering.

    I had one laptop (win7) and one desktop (XP)infected.
    however, this “live Security Platinum” created a desktop icon which allowed me to trace its location in my computers.
    next step is simple, restart PC and hit F8 to enter into “safemode with command prompt”. once I was in, simply delete all three files in the folder that I found from the the early step.
    say in XP, the virus stays in
    C:\document and settings\all users\applications Data\ then a very long name subfolder
    hope this help.

    Thanks for the help, but it won’t let me remove the selected threats because it says I need a Trojan killer activation code, do I need to purchase this?

    I had to restart in Safe mode with Networking because the virus blocked the download of pkiller.exe when I used the Win+R method described. Then I was able to download Trojan Killer and get rid of it. Evil virus!
