I see a number of processes running, everytime I kill them they respawn. I also think they are linked to MSN messenger because when I try to close it the system tells me another process is using it, I have to manually kill it. Here are the ones I see but they seem to change name:

BbgX5i.exe
EzEjMnAp.Exe
HcswrR4U.exe

I ran Ad-Ware 6.181 with file 01R279 31.03.2004 with no luck. Also tried with an advanced scan with settings took from the lavasoft message board. Also tried Spybot S&D without success.

None of the three you've identified show up on my radar - EzEjMnAp.Exe is IBM's 'easy eject' utility...

Not sure about the other two though...
Just to be certain:

Check these links for online virus scanners.  It's recommended to run at least two of these.  
  Norton/Symantec --> http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/default.asp?productid=symhome&langid=ie&venid=sym
  Trend Micro -->     http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
  Panda ActiveScan--> http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
  McAfee Security --> http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp
  Stinger -->         http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/stinger.exe

These links Check for Spyware:
  Spybot-S&D -->  http://www.safer-networking.org/
  Web Shredder--> http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html#cwshredder
  Pest Patrol --> http://www.pestpatrol.com/downloads/eval/download.asp
  PCHell removal->http://www.pchell.com/support/spyware.shtml

  Make sure that after downloading these, that you update them.  It helps to try at least two of these.

Use this free online Trend Housecall scanner to find and clean every known virus/rootkits/backdoors:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Some viruses can't be removed by housecall. If so, use the free Trend Micro system cleaner:
http://www.trendmicro.com/download/tsc.asp

If you get's an ActiveX error, when loading the HouseCall web page:

If you want to secure your one workstation in the future, consider to purchase PC-cillin with builtin firewall:
http://www.trendmicro.com/en/products/desktop/pc-cillin/evaluate/overview.htm

If it's the mydoom.f variant, follow the solution on
