Spybot S&D says it's there but can't remove it. It apparently very aggressive.
you can try avast or adaware with their run-after-boot scans.
according to a google search, the solution seems to be boot to the xp cd and use the recover console. delete the c:\windows\help\mui\accas.dll file, reboot to windows, and run spybot/adaware/anti-virus scans to clean things out.
That thing is horrible to kill. If all of the automatic methods don't get rid of it (adaware etc.), then try a manual removal in Safe Mode. You can find instructions by Googling. That was the only way I could finally get rid of it without it reinstalling itself.
I had it a couple months ago. I had to reformat for my PC after f'ing up the removal. I thought I removed it, but it would restart itself a couple minutes later. Googled for help, f'ed something up in my boot drive, so I had to reformat my PC.
Do a search for the following- Virtmundobegone, combofix, and Vundofix. Where I work at, we have been able to clear it up with one or all of these. You have to run them in safe mode with system restore turned off before you run them. I usaully ran SpyBot first. Good luck.
you can also sign up for a 30 day trial of kaspersky anti-virus
