Trojan Killer removed the Windows Repair virus; however I still can't see any files from C Drive.

I am running Windows 7.

Please help, thanks

The free trial version won't get rid of it for me, just scans and shows me the infected files. Id like to avoid paying for the program. How do you go about doing it manually? I see you've listed what I need to delete, but how do I go about doing that?

Okay so I think I got rid of it, but how can I be sure?

I appreciate any help, I just want to be assured my computer is safe :)

This is an easy one just ctrl alt del then end process for 40492808 then do a search for c:program data\40492808 and delete both files that appear then scan clean up and search again to make sure it is gone.

I came home to this problem yesterday, family member in a panic. I saw that all the files were "gone" but as a tech person, I knew that could not be so, otherwise, how could it even boot up if there were no files?! Also the properties showed that the files were still holding up to 50% of the drive space so I figured the HIDDEN attribute was set. I scrounged around looking for a fix. In the MSCONFIG / STARTUP files, the file xYVTHAV.exe (or something like that) was loading - a BIG TIP OFF that this was a trojan. Once I changed the File/Folder view to show hidden, I saw all the files. Went through the process of removing all entries related to this file (as well as another one, a numeric name file similar to the one above but different numbers - see properties of the shortcut Windows Remover). But it still disabled the Task Manager. Will try these steps to see if that helps. It also disabled Windows Restore ability.
