That's an old virus mate, it's been wreaking havoc for a couple of years now, mostly as a result from porn surfing....
You might want to surf safe sites! Wink

I've you tried rebooting in safe mode. I'd recommend this piece of software, the free trial one should sort it....

yup tried that pretty much tried everything I could think of when I call the guy who fixes our computers he said the only way to remove it is to have the hard drive removed wiped and reloaded it basically rewrites your windows program so conventional ways of getting rid of it has no success.

Create kickstartdisk on USB (with the use of HitmanPro) on a non-infected pc and boot the infected pc from usb with the kickstart usb drive inserted. (you might have to change your boot-order to boot from USB).

Have done 2 computers within 30 minutes, the last one just finished 2 minutes ago. Smile

I'm working in IT myself and unless this virus is new since this morning it's removable without re-install.
Repeat above steps yourself and tell your computer wizard he's wrong (sell him the solution lol).

Succes!
