Hi!
The standalone virus cleaners don't detect all the malwares, only the most known. You can try to disable the system restore, programming a scan at reboot and restart the pc.
 After the scan is completed, remember to activate the system restore.

Could i suggest going into safe mode as admin and travelling to system 32 folder and just delete the exe.  ::)

yes, is the other right alternative, boobear: in both cases, you must run the antivirus before the services and the applications start. :). eheheh, Clousseau... you're really a detective!  ;D

Ok lets see my system restore is off When my cousing built it he never turned it on saying it uses up wasted space.  I also have run scans from rebooting and when the viruses come and i hit repair they tell me they cant be repaired so I have had to delete certain files my computer is still running fine but the virus or viruses are still here so what do I do now????
