I googled the Virus, I tried Downloading the Spyware, but during installation, it was stopped from installing.
The same with the other Software I tried.

I tried Manually to remove following instructions, such as End Process, but the AV.exe comes back straight away.

Avast didnt detect it.

a few days on and now Firefox won't load
"windows cannot access the specified path..."

I've Downloaded that...
But Access is denied to everything...even Windows Media Player...
I restored permissions but it went back to denying everything.
So I can't install anything...

Phew. Glad it's working. Keep us posted. I was seconds away from putting on my troll suit and recommending you buy a Mac.

They can be evil. I did something stupid once, infected this thing, which has tons of stuff on it that at the time wasn't properly backed-up, and then fought a day-long pitched battle to get rid of some horrible virus. That was about as pleasant as crawling through a cow paddock. Glad yours is working though

Guys

I got this too while trawling a torrent site  

A quick search on Google shows you how to remove after installing a registry string. Run Malwarebytes and all is now well. I got it again just to make sure the removal process was the same and it worked again.

Another thing to try is a little program called Killbox. When you run it from the DOS shell in Safe Mode, it can disable just about any .exe file and allow you to manually delete.
