Virus Trojan - Downloader ausvc.exe and auupg.exe

Hi everyone - just been infected by the above trojans. AVG has healed and isolated a copy of each in the vault. System still not right after half-dozen reboots. Just about to release 'Stinger' on system. Has anyone else had dealings with these critters. They do not show up on McaFee library.

ausvc.exe and auupg.exe sound to me like the name of the files infected, not the name of the virus

The Trojan creates an AUSVC.EXE file in the Windows directory and downloads the contents of the file. It again sleeps for 30 minutes before it executes the file and terminates itself. AUSVC.EXE is a software package installer that retrieves data via http request, and downloads and installs software into an infected system.

Once everything has been downloaded, it executes AUUPG.EXE to retrieve the other packages.

Boot in to Safe Mode and rescan.
