Perhaps you did get rid of it, and now all that's left is a call in the
registry trying to find the virus to run it.

Now, that does not clean out dead entries from the start up folder or the
registry, does it? What do you expect to accomplish by having someone run
those utilities? It will not solve the O/P's problem.

Many times a virus, or an honest program, will have an entry left in the
various "start" areas within the operating system when they are removed. You
can use msconfig to locate this now bogus entry.

Click on Start | Run

Type in msconfig

Press enter

Go to the startup tab. Look through there for an entry that seems like it is
associated with what is trying to start. If you find one, or more, remove
the checks from that/those particular entries. Then close msconfig and
reboot your computer. You will get a window saying that you have started the
computer with selective startup. No to worry. It is normal at this time. You
can choose not to see this message again, when you know that your problem
has been corrected.

You probably don't want it back since it's probably the nasty, but want
to delete whatever reference is trying to run it.
