Download and run "Stinger" click here, it'll get rid of it for you, Tino955. If you're using Windows ME or XP, disable system restore before running Stinger. When you get the all clear after stinger has run, re-activate system restore.

just remember to dissable any windows restore, as this'll make a back up of the virus...
