Kaspersky is the best according to me when it comes to cleaning out an infected system. Use their 30 day trial to clean the system, and then uninstall and use a free AV system if you will.

Hey Guys ,i tried the online scan but as i said ,earlier when i tries to ecess such sites ,my browser closes,
and also my taskmanger closes
But Now i hav got rid of it in a very tricky way,without using any antivirus

What i did is ---
1.i opens the Tune Up Utilitities 2007 ?(allready installed)
2.then i open the TuneUp Process Manager (Becouse My Windows task manger was not working because of this virus or it closes suddenly after starting it)
3.Then i find that 2 windows explores programs were running (normaly there sholud be only one ) it did'nt take me time to find the wrong one,then i closes this program
4.Now i searched and deleted all the folders with name New Folder.exe(thanks Windows Vista for this better and fast search)
and one other program vcdgcw32.dll (that was in system32 folder) , which was the actual virus.
5.because allready had closed the windows explorer in the taskman (which was a fake name) so no new folder created when i delete all folders with the name New Foder.exe
Like My trick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

OK you cleared all the folder.exe files. But do you know that other allready existing exe files can also be infected?
Do a actual virus scan d00d as soon as possible. Viruses tends to infect other files too.
