I had a similar problem on a friends computer Safest thing to do would be to download McAfee from their website www.mcafee.com (they have a fully functional trial version), install it and have it scan your computer for virus.

If it doesn't find it then go ahead and follow the 1ReadMe.txt for removal instructions.

I followed the second method on my friends computer which got the job done and the computer is doing fine now :o)

I hope this helps.
