Windows 7: I need help removing Ukash virus please!

I need help removing Ukash virus please!

Im fixing a laptop here that is infected by the Ukash virus. After some research there seems to be a few different versions. They all do the same thing tho. They lock your computer and show a screen sayin your PC has been locked because you where on some illegal websites. They give you a link to go to some other site to pay 100 euro. Im not sure what it says on the screen though because its in Irish, bad i cant speak Irish I know but ya can get the message. It obviously a virus to try scare people into payin it. Anyway, I have started in safe mode, installed and ran Malwarebytes ad that found nothing. It does also not seem to appear in the start up menu under msconfig. some people have said that they simply found it there, because it has a stupid name and they just then navagated to it and deleted it! I seen a tutorial showing how to replace the explorer but i just said id ask because i dont fancy deleting explore. See what ya think of this and is it good to do or try!
