How can I get rid of TR/ATRAPS?

Hello everyone,
I can not seem to get rid of this trojan.
If I run my antivirus it stops before finishing even if left on all day. If I run it in safe mode with "System Restore" disabled it takes about 1 hour and shows nothing present but when I reboot in normal windows it keeps showing up no matter how many times I try to delete it.
I have looked on the web and tried suggestions from a previous posting but to no avail.
I have closed my previous thread as the title may have been unclear, ticked as solved but it is not.
Can anyone help me on this please.

Thanks crosstrainer, tried it and it ran for 20mins showing 6 infections then just stopped.
Then blank screened about 2mins later.

Thanks crosstrainer,the program on your link seems to have sorted this but I am still a bit apprehensive.
See what tomorrow brings.

Vundo variant which uses a rootkit-like method to hide various bits of itself; click here

You need something like SmitFraud/Combofix which runs in Safe Mode, but best done under the supervision of one of the experts at a malware forum.

Or follow someone else's instructions after the event....click here

"Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode etc etc

* Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script."

Thanks brundle I appreciate your help, I have done exactly as you suggested and all seems ok until the click on "run this.bat" click where?
