Why doesn't my AV software pick up on this and how can I get rid of it?

RE: W32/Gaobot.worm.gen.u

AV software doesn't detect this virus if it has not been submitted to the AV researchers or the Engine and DATs are out of date. You can remove the virus by sumitting the file to VirusTotal and McAfee, then deleting the files in Safe mode.
