I have the virus also and using windows xp, can anyone tell where I would find these files. Thank you in advance for any and all help,
I don't have the appdata folder under the username. There is one at the same level as username, but it doesn't include the listed files.
The AppData folder is hidden. Go to Control Panel, Folder Options, View, and check "show hidden files and folders"

When you have completed the steps in the document and if you still are not able to get back up and running try the free version of this tool http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php You may need to download this on a non infected pc onto a usb stick and you should rename the download and installation folders to something you can easily remember since virus and malware are written to self protect themselves. When you get it installed check for the latest updates and run the program and let it clean everything it finds and reboot the computer if you are prompted to do so.
SuperAntispyware is also a good one to have and it catches a lot of stuff as well. Just follow the same procedure as above. www.superantispyware.com

I have XP and none of the previous describe fixes worked. I downloaded rkill, and malware scanner, rebooted in safe mode and followed all instructions. McAfee did not stop the malware, nor could it find in in complete scan. The malware software did a full scan and did not fix the problem. THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED WAS TO USE THE WINDOWS RESTORE FUNCTION TO A DATE PREVIOUS TO THE PROBLEM.
