What anti virus were you using when you got this infection?

Did MAM, Eset, or Defender Off Line show this infection in their scan logs or quarantine logs? Did you update all three of those programs before using full scans.
I installed and/or updated those three and none of them could find this malware.

Did Task Manager and/or Processor Explorer show this infection running?
Abslutely not, that's what I found very ingenious in this malware, it hid itself from those two programs and fortunately for me it couldn't hide itself from Bill2's Process Manager.
The reason I ask is; it is very odd that 5 great programs did not see or find this
igfxupdate.exe virus running.
Mind, that when I ran MEM and ESET, I had Process Explorer running which may (or may not) have made the task to identify this malware more difficult. But Defender Offline couldn't find it either.
