What does your Antivirus

pick it up as. You could try this.

Follow the steps below with the System started and restarted in Safe Mode with Networking. Running in Safe Mode loads a minimal set of drivers for the Operating System. You can use these options to start Windows so that you can modify the registry or load or remove drivers.

With the new strains of Virus that have been created you may find it necessary to rename the executable files so that they will work. Rename mbam-setup.exe and then navigate to the install folder and rename mbam.exe. Do not change the files extension from .exe. Do the same with Spybot.

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, install it and update it.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.

I would keep scanning with it until it is clean by closing out and rebooting and running it again.

Also run this Rootkit Revealer GMer


Just to be on the safe side when you finish do an online scan with Bitdefender or Google for an online scanner.

One of those 'cleverly-named files-that-no-one-understands' sort of files that's supposed to confabulate and confuse the user.

I'd run a very very deep scan, if I were you.
