run a scan with mcafee under safemode and let it to clean the virus there
if it cannot remove it, then remove the file manually.
Look in C:\Documents and Settings\[yourusername] for wintask.exe. If you find it in that location delete it. Also look in C:\Windows\System32 for the same file (size 2645 bytes), since many times malware will camouflage themselves to look like something valid .
Can you run Hijackthis and show us the log please?
Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" please don't fix anything yet.

You can remove Enfal Virus this way:

1) Boot into safe mode

2) Delete registry values:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit\%System%\userinit.exe,%System%\dismgnt.exe

3) Delete files: dismgnt.exe
The dismgnt.exe file can be found in the default system directory, which is one of the following: C:\Windows\System, C:\Windows\System32, C:\Winnt\System32.

Sophos also has a tool to remove/clean it:
