Many machines appear to be infected by a new form of this virus. CA does not have solution for this strain of virus as of last night. Could this be an isolated infection or have others reported this to the Experts?
Thanks,
Lance

I would download the latest versions of the following malware removers and rescan the machines.

malwarebytes - http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
[Admin Edit - link removed. Vee_Mod]

make sure that both packages are up to date.

If nothing is identified please post a HiJackThis log -

Malwarebytes should handle it as advised above, if all else fails, I am pretty sure Combofix can clean it.
