hdav.exe and file.exe

Does anyone know anything about the virus that resides in the above files ?

I looks like once infected the PC creates an autorun.inf on the root of any connected drive, and also on the root of the same drive creates recycle bin folder named "drive"  containing file.exe which the autorun launches once initiated. Once run file.exe creates a new recycle bin folder named as a random SID  in c:recycler\ containing hdav.exe

Mcafee does not detect a virus after a full scan. There are lots of hits on google from companies selling other anti-virus or spyware products which I'd rather avoid.

Can anyone advise if they know this virus and how to clear it?

Try running all of them in Safe Mode as well in Normal Mode except Combofix.
