Trojan.agent keeps reappearing on start-up

Specs: vista
Hi,
Ive got a Trojan.agent on my computer, ive run malwarebytes and its finding:
HKLM\system\currentcontrolsetenum\root\legacy_microsoft_windows_service

I have deleted this but on reboot it keeps reappearing.
I have gone into registry editor and found the Trojan there as cqyaoft.exe but everytime i delete this it just comes back instantly.
I have gone into the programs that run on start-up and unchecked cqyaoft.exe but again on reboot it just reappears again.

I was just wondering how bad this Trojan is and would appreciate any help in getting my computer back up and running.

Thanks for your time.

Download & run Hijack This. Look for it in there.

If it's a trojan like you say, I would suggest Trojan Remover and Hitman Pro. Run them both till they run clean

Thanks for the replies,

Ive run avast antivirus today which found infections and deleted with a boot-time scan, ive since run malwarebytes again and its not finding anything now.
I think the trojan is still hiding somewhere though as my internet will not load up now and a warning pops up on the tool bar on the bottom right hand side.

I too would still be interested in the malwarebytes log. I am kind of wondering if this came with a root kit as well, based on it returning all the time.
