Name VBS/Solow-B  Low threat..
Type Worm
 How it spreads>>> Removable storage devices << do you have any storage devices plugged in? Remove all external usb devices and hardware where possible, any slaved hdd?

 Affected operating systems Windows
 Side effects Installs itself in the Registry.
 Protection available since 14 February 2007 08:05:47 (GMT)  

that said and done try scanning in safemode, check the regestry keys in safe mode also,
often times success is higher when windows is not using anything.
if all fails slaving the hdd can also work wonders but you woudl need a second desktop.

The tool will also create a bogus folder, autorun.inf in every partition to stop the spread of infection.
It wont stop the infected file from getting in, but it does prevent the loading point from getting created.
