Rename it, you should be able to delete it after a reboot.
Also, go into msconfig and remove the check mark in from of the scr call in the startup list.

I have removed the files manually all the register keys of it. Now, no warning message is displayed. And no other activities of it. But, when I open the internet explorer it open with my home page i.e. with google but it disappear within second and message displayed " Insecure Internet Activity. Threat of virus attack...... to get full advanced real-time protection for PC and Internet activity, register KvmSecure.

..............buying option.......
continued to this website unprotected

This virus is terrible. It seems to attatch it's self into different areas of the system registery. I believe I have isolated it, but when I run MSCONFIG it still show's up under the "start-up" tab under lphgcn9j0eaal and rhcln9j0eaal.

Not sure how to get rid of them from there. I un-check them so that they won't run....

Regards,

John

My daughter, a college studed in the middle of midterms with complted assignments and papers on her laptop, has this virus. I have complained to the anti virus co. and was sent a program they said would correct what one of their marketing partners had done. It did not as it would not download on her computer nor tranfer when I tried to transfer it from a disk downloaded on my computer. They delayed and delayed saying thye would take care of the problem. Now her computer had gotten so much worse and she has access to a very few things on it, with no access to explorer. Since I can now not go in and delete this virus manually, and it appears that I can no longer run anything from her D drive, is there a way or a program that can be activated from the initial start up of her computer.
Thanks
