Try using task manager and ending processes which do not seem normal.

However sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do a reinstall, you will probably spend a lot less time with the reinstall than trying to remove that virus.

Hope this helps

When you reinstall windows do you bring in files from a cd or anything?, or do you reformat the drive????  My guess is that your machine is getting reinfected with the virus. I have heard of bios virus however i have never seen them, but i always thought they were more tales than reality.

so are you formatting your hard drive when you reinstall windows? if not it leaves everything intact and isnt helping you at all.
