use MCafee stinger in safe mode http://vil.nai.com/vil/conficker_stinger/Stinger_Coficker.exe
also the Microsoft malicious software removal tool does the trick

also please make sure to disable autorun , finally this link should sum it up http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/7_resources_to_help_you_prepare_for_confickers_d-d.php

Dear Admin3k,

Many thank for your help! I use Stinger_coficker.exe and tool from microsoft follow about links-- it seem stinger-coficker.exe can detected and remove the existing tasks which was created by virus, but could not clean the core virus ! The new task is recreated repeatly !

The same with symantec, it can detected and move the infected files into qaranteen
but also can not fix the main process of virus .

Please give me more hints!

thanks,
