Yikes...I mentioned at first I didn't find any info on my topic. I obviously missed something, there's a ton of info here! Apologies. I'll try the recommendations from the other threads, will post if the methods discussed don't work.
I share in your frustration. This is a nasty virus. I had it invade my laptop and after a few days of trying I called my computer expert and he suggested I remove my hard drive put it in a Mercury On The Go SATA portable case and plug it into another computer via the USB and scan and remove this virus with a virus scan software. I acutally used 3 antivirus scans. Mcafee found one problem and removed it. I then scanned it with PCTOOLS and anti virus that removed a few more problems. I then went to a site called malwarebytes.com, downloaded thier free software and that removed 5 more Trogans. I think the malwarebytes.com was the best and free. After all the scans and fixes, I reinstalled the hard drive in the original computer and now it's fine. Good luck and if you found a simpler solution congratulations. compsams
