Thanks much, but if only it were so simple...

Just got hit with this on our Dell today and Ive got hundreds of rkr.exe processes running. Tried running < taskkill /f /im rkr.exe > from cmd without success.

Now the malware doesnt even launch providing the opportunity to enter the reg key provided. Safe mode or not, machine is just hijacked with blank windows flashing. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

I think i have got rid of this sick virus as far as i can see but has certenly left its mark. Most of my programs wont run, windos media, word etc, when i try to open such programs an "open with" box pops up but that dont work either.
Thought i would try a system restore but it seems to have disabled the restore wizard, or is there another way?
Thanking you in advance
