This thing is viscious. Here's what I observed with this malware if we can call it that:
1. It disabled all administrator rights, even safeboot administrator account did not have admin rights anymore.
2. It disabled access to user maintenance screen, command line access, control panel, you name it. There was no way to get to it. Because of this I did not have a way to install system apps that would detect and clean up the b---tard.
3. I popped in by xp disc and repaired the OS to no avail. The painful thing, this infectious file was ejecting my disc every minute or less so the installation was so painful but that was my last hope.

***In the end, I ended up reformatting my drive and starting from scratch. I think I got nailed by this because all the accounts in my laptop had admin rights and I did not have a cleaning tool installed (i.e., adaware). I am not sure what adaware could have done if I had it installed. I am all clean now but I have a mission to find a cure to this attack. If you guys know something, let this forum know.
