Be aware that certain rootkit viruses can even survive reformatting a hard drive. In these cases the only 100% safe option is to replace the hard drive and reinstall Windows

The solution is use Process Explorer from Microsoft and look for Winlogon. Remove any entry after "," (comma).
This will prevent from auto starting...

Normally they are hidden from the user so go to c:\ click on View > Options > View > Show Hidden Files, Folders and drives and press OK

To remove the files use an anti virus or navigate to c:\program files\ and look for suspicious folder.

"Kicking" is the correct idea..."Curb" is the wrong place.

People and what they do never ceases to amaze me.
