How do I successfully remove the (Possible_Virut-3) Virus

Our network has been hit by a very nasty Generic Virus called Possible_Virut-3. So far 30 pc's have be infected. We've been trying to work with Trend Micro on the issue but we've exhausted all avenues as far as having the latest DAT's, Patches, Updates.

We ran a Sysclean utility that Trend offered us but didnt clean the machine whatsoever

We've run Hijack this and the one file we've noticed come in is the mdhash.dll. It's a hidden file but we've been able to Quarantine it but the service continually returns in Hijack This.

We've tried numerous Adware / Spyware applications but none of them are detecting it.

If anyone has been able to successfully clean this Virus, please get back to me. Thanks for your time

Can you show us the hijackthis log?
If it is infact file infector 'virut" you would noticed that some programs won't be working as their files have been deleted by scanners.
Virut is a buggy file infector, in which antivirus can't clean the infected files so instead those get deleted. For virut infections, it would be a matter of removing the infection and replacing all the corrupted/missing files, and if there are too many programs that are affected then I would just opt for a reformat(that's if it's the file-infector virut)
