Windows 7: Aggravating window and a passive virus

Aggravating window and a passive virus

so awhile ago me and a buddy were playing Need for Speed World Online and I walked away to use the bathroom. When I came back he jumped away from my desk and there was a window open on my laptop. The window was called Password recovery, so i thought nothing of it. I closed the window than suddenly command prompt opened and showed what look like scrolling code. It was to fast so i couldn't read it. When it was done command prompt closed and a window opened than my task bar disappeared. i cant close the window but the title of it is Openbit. I tried to use Task Manager and it gave me an error saying it was restricted by the Administrator, but I'm the only user on the laptop. I figured that part out and can solve the Task Manager issue myself. I've tried restoring my system to an update from 2 weeks, a month, all the way back to when i bought and boot up the computer for the first time but nothing changed. How can I get rid of this virus? i cant seem to find what he downloaded to give me this.


EDIT* When i restored it said it failed to load previous registry so the virus is messing with it. Just can't figure out how to get rid of it.

Change all your passwords uning a known "clean computer" ... do not use the infected one!!

Now, flush the 'dirty' DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file by doing this:
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop.
Double click on the flush.bat file to run it.Vista and Windows 7... right click the .bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

Sorry about the late response. I fixed it using Norton Secuirty Suite and than got side tracked with need for speed world. Thank you for the help though! Sadly I've run into another issue. I posted a new thread. You can find it here:
