David, follow the steps on this other question, and update your question with more details of what worked, what didn't, if you need more help. If this other question is enough to fix your issue, don't hesitate to update as well, to tell that. @Sathya - this question is not made to close all virus-related questions as duplicates, it's only a reference. Every virus case is potentially different. –  Gnoupi May 14 '10 at 21:41

Really the only thing you can do is eliminate the virus, there's tons of guides on this kind of stuff but the only truly sure way is to re-install windows. Yeah it's an inelegant solution but it will fix the problem. Good luck.
