Need Help Removing FTPSVR.EXE Trojan

I have a machine that has the ftpsvr.exe trojan. I deleted the file off the hard drive and removed the registry entry from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run that started up the program. However, when I rebooted the file came back and continues to hang up the machine. I cannot end the process in Task Manager . I restarted in Safe Mode and cannot find the file on the hard drive and the registry entry is still deleted yet the ftpsvr file still runs. I swapped out the machine so I know the problem is not profile related. We are using McAfee VirusScan 7.1.0 with the latest updates. Thanks for your help.

Seems quite simple.

I ran Spybot and BHODaemon on the machine and after that the computer was fine. I think points ought to go to blue_zee for finding a good solution even though it was not the one I actually used. Any problem with that?
