Vista Registry Problem

    Using Vista Ultimate SP1 64 bit. A few months ago was infected by a
    persistent virus which mostly appears as "YURD" often YURD622. I was able
    to eliminate the symptoms completely - popups, potential hijacks etc.
    However the 'Malwarebytes' and manual registry scans finds in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\YURD622.exe. This
    can be deleted but reappears on the next even immediate scan. If you do it
    in safe mode it appears on the next scan after reboot.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what can be continually undeleting this entry?
    TIA

    Not sure if vista has this.. but xp has a nasty little folder called
    Content ie5. it is hidden, you need to navigate to it and know where it
    is to open it, you cant find it by a search. Check that folder for
    virus bits. Also open the prefetch folder, delete the contents. They
    will come back on next boot. (again, xp but should be similar in vista)
    also you can download a removal tool that will find anything you missed.
