    sounds like its a custom autorun virus

    usually located in c:\windows\system32\

    Prolly best going to
    www.bitdefender.com and doing a online scan this should pick it up

    ... First off though Turn off system restore as this virus will sit in a restore point and pretty much be hidden away from the eyes of the Anti Virus.

    reboot and give your pc a good scan.

    Run Process Explorer (right click on task bar>task manager>Processes) and Kill the Following Processes:
    wscript.exe
    dxdlg.exe (kill this one first)

    Run Autoruns and under logon tab, remove
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
    Search for entries named wproxp and remove it

    Remove the following files from your PC:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdlg.exe
    wproxp.exe (Most probably in your system32 or windows folder)
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
    Thanks
