Click the start button and type regedit then press enter.

Press Ctrl+F to open the find dialog box and enter the filename into the box and click search. If any are found then delete the reference and search again until 'no results' appears. Once done try rebooting

You can try installing kb971033 in safe mode. For that you need to have the windows installer service running (it normally doesnt in safe mode), you can use a small tool called Safemsi.exe to enable that feature easily.

If you can boot into windows normally, run the update.

There have been many reports (including myself until I bought a copy of Windows 7 legit ) of complete re-installs required. If you have any documents/videos/music/pictures/downloads that you'd need to save you can do it to external media while in safe mode.

This process will completely remove all sign of the infection and allow for a clean OS, which you can then install all the available updates completely virus free
