    Go through these general malware removal steps systematically -

    Include scanning with David Lipman's Multi_AV and follow instructions to
    do all scans in Safe Mode. Please see the special Notes regarding using
    Multi_AV in Vista.

    http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/page2.html#Multi-AV - instructions
    - download site

    The site is in German but David's tool is in English so don't let that
    worry you. Scroll all the way down to almost the bottom of the page and
    you'll see a box titled "Infos Zum Download - Multi-AV Scanning Tool".
    You'll see "Download von www pctipp.ch" and the live link to download

    You can also check to see if there are targeted removal steps for your
    malware here:
    Bleeping Computer removal how-to's -

    When all else fails, run HijackThis and post your log in one of the
    specialty forums listed at the first link above (not here, please).

    Not all tools used will work in Vista and you will need to run them
    elevated. Since Vista is so new, it will be a while before removal
    techniques and tools are developed. If you are unable to remove the
    infection by following the general steps, register at one of the
    HijackThis forums as suggested.

    Standard caveat: If the procedures look too complex - and there is no
    shame in admitting this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a
    professional computer repair shop (not your local version of
    BigComputerStore/GeekSquad). Please be aware that not all local shops
    are skilled at removing malware and even if they are, your computer may
    be so infested that Windows will need to be clean-installed. Have all
    your data backed up before you take the machine into a shop.

    You can create a new .txt document but rename .exe
