Hi
its some sort of web trojan..these are its dependencies..
Running processes:
C:\WINDOWS\AddCLS.exe
regedit key:
HKCU\..\Run: [AddClass] C:\WINDOWS\AddCLS.exe

I dont suggest moving it by manually ...try the following..
1: go to safemode and try to remove it...with norton anti  if this does not work
2: create a norton rescue disk and restart with the floppy and do a scan and try to remove it..  if this does not work
3: remove manually.

good luck
