Picked up this virus/worm overnight on my computer. Does anyone have any suggestions for its removal? It appears in ie7 which is surprising as I always use Firefox.

More information? What AV do you use, is it unable to remove the problem for example

Brundle, using AVG [the version you pay for] which ironically I left doing a full scan overnight when I picked up the virus. Currently trying a full scan with Ad=Aware and hope this will pick it up.

Anybody searching Google for this problem would be advised to download McAfee Site Advisor First.There are so many bad sites that you are likely to pick up a nastie yourselves.This one for Internet here it only puts it's icon on your toolbar and warns you whenabout to enter a bad site.

Thanks everyone for your advice. Ad-Aware and or windows defender seem to have caught it. Firefox works fine but Ie7 would not open so I had to reset it and all appears to be running well now.
