Check registry keys in the run box like these

CurrentVersion\Run "avserve3.exe" = C:\WINDOWS\avserve3.exe

CurrentVersion\Run "avserve.exe" = C:\WINDOWS\avserve.exe

You could also try to find and delete/rename these files. Search the whole HDD.

Make sure to check C:\_Restore folder.

To remove this virus "by hand", follow these steps:

Here is what McAfee had to say(for one of the variants) :

Reboot the system into Safe Mode (hit the F8 key as soon as the Starting Windows text is displayed, choose Safe Mode.
Delete the file AVSERVE.EXE from your WINDOWS directory (typically c:\windows or c:\winnt)
Edit the registry
Delete the "avserve" value from
Reboot the system into Default Mode

Good Luck

to perform registry edits, you need to run regedit from start/run box. Standard reference to changing registry keys here. (Please be careful.)
