How to remove Tazebama.dll virus

In_Ness_EE01 used Ask the Experts™

I have a serious issue in a XP machine. I have used usb and through that machine got affected by Tazebama.dll trojan. After that the tazebama.dll process i can see in task manager. I have reinstalled the OS in system drive and then if i access any other drive the same process gets started and as a result i am not able to delete any folder from any drive. It has generated duplicate folder inside each and every folder in my machine.Apart from that abode and adobe are two processes that also runs simultaneously.

Do anybody has solutions for the same? Please let me know.

Note: I do not have internet connection for the same machine.

This is a W32.MaBezat infection , which quoting Symantec page below 
W32.Mabezat.B is a worm that spreads through email, removable drives and network shares protected by weak passwords. It also infects executable files and encrypts data files.
it appears your system became infected again even after reinstalling the OS because Drive autorun aka Autoplay is enabled, and the worm has used this technique to keep a backup of itself there.
in order to recover you must  have an installed antivirus program , this is because there is a virus compoenent here which encrypts your files in a way that they need to be cleaned by an antivirus program, Antispyware programs will do nothing here.
some excellent & free for home use Antivirus programs 
however in order to recover from the main infection, you can try running Combofix ,Malwarebytesflash disinfector.
P.S: if you have no internet  on that machine, download the tools elsewhere, rename the files & copy to that machine using CD or Flash drie.

Restart into safe mode and run your anti virus and spyware detection programs. I suggest running this series in three back to back cycles, rebooting once per cycle back into safe mode:

1, Malwarebytes
2. SuperAntiSpyware
3. Spybot
4. Symantec Endpoint or Symantec Corp AntiVirus

After three complete cycles, reboot into normal mode. If the situation continues, go to TrendMicro and run the online scan Housecall


Finally the problem has been resolved login in Safemode and run full scan with the latest Sysmantec definition file. Thanks a lot.

Malwarebytes didnt get it even after reboot out from SafeMode for me.
