But is unable to remove it. Anyone know how to remove this??? I've tried a few things and none have worked. Avast didn't detect anything.

My laptop got plagued by a trojan downloader it was totally nasty. Disabled task manager and the whole nine yards I thought for sure a format was in the cards. All the usual spyware programs did squat.

At any rate of all things the only thing that perfectly cleaned it all up was system restore in the start system menu I believe.

You need to roll back to a previous checkpoint saved configuration. If you haven't installed any programs or done anything substantial to your system config in between that checkpoint and now you should be fine. Because it pretty much rewinds your computer in time (your system config) to that point in time.

Worked like a charm though.

Thanks James... I ended up turned off my system restore and then ran a virus check, nothing happen, but when I turn on the system restore again and did a check with windows malicious sofware removal the virus was gone. I guess just turning off and on the system restore did the trick.

After a week full of Red Bulls, Fruit by the Foot and dreams of In-N-Out, the mighty Sony VAIO loaded with Linux stood as the only machine unhacked by the end of the PWN 2 OWN hacking contest at CanSecWest. As you're well aware by now, the MacBook Air on display was seized in two minutes by the presumably well prepared Charlie Miller, and after two full days of work, Shane Macaulay and a few of his 1337 associates managed to crack the Vista rig on Friday. Reportedly, Shane and his pals weren't expecting to do battle with the extra protected SP1 version of Vista, and while the exact loophole won't be divulged, we are told that it was a cross-platform bug that "took advantage of Java to circumvent Vista's security." In the end, it was reported that some folks on hand had discovered bugs in the Linux OS, but many of them "didn't want to put the work into developing the exploit code that would be required to win the contest."
