I concur - in the worst case scenario its a difficult rootkit, and very few people try to clean those manually given the rate that they morph at. A clean install will definately sort that out though.

Full Scan still running (only half way), however it has already reported that it has found malicious software - no names yet.

I will keep you posted

Scan finished - no virus reported just some malicious files ( didn't note names sorry ) cleaned up. Got system booted up, but took ages, ran the scannow which reported no problems. System boots up but takes 20-25 mins !!

Managed to transfer my files & docs so looks like I'm just going to have to do a clean install
