No, what AV software do you have now?.
In the link i gave click the removal instructions tab on the page,it talks you through what to do.

Not familiar with that app,but whay cant it detect and remove it?

Take a close look at any virus-report or log you can find in Antivir - the virus will almost certainly be in a compressed form, in an archive or .zip file so Antivir will not `repair` it - you need to locate the file in question and delete it yourself.
