ukash infection

no idea how. last night all was ok, did not download anything at all.
this morning, I woke up to find my remote computer being infected with the ukash virus/trojan!

all my Windows is updated as is my AV (symantec SBE) - no idea how i got this infection. The worst part is that I wont be home for another few days and have got important things on the computer.

how does one get infected with this virus and how can I remove it? I am based in the UK.

it doesnt make sense what happened in those 9 hours between last night and this morning.... i cant CTRL+ALT+DELETE but can do an ALTGR + Del however any key presses or switching between tasks/apps does not work.

I can't tell you how it happened except you could of got it at another time and a timer was installed with the virus. Use this, it works for many of people. Just follow the instruction. It is easy to do but does take some time.

If it does find virus ect. let us know which ones. As far as I know it should work.

I take it there is currently no way of doing this remotely via RDP? Even to kill that process of the trojan? Anything at all remotely?

ok im home now. im currently using the Windows Defender offline on the usb stick and its doing a quick scan.

it just told me that the preliminary scan results show that malicious or potentially unwanted software may exist (im hoping that it is the ukash virus/trojan)

once, hopefully, removed - what are the next steps to see if anything has been either jepordized OR if it still exists on the system?

so it found win32/karagany.i. I pressed remove and said actions were successfully carried out. now doing another quick scan again and seeing if it picks up anything else.

other than that - anything else I need to do? is there another way I can scan the system to see if there are traces of the virus or its varient?

to me, from what ive been reading - does not sound like the ukash virus....
