I really hope someone can help me..
this is what it says in the McAfee website :





Virus Characteristics
This Trojan contacts the website www.pacimedia.com (200.170.192.51) to download various adware and trojan files. It keeps listening on a random TCP port and downloads the unwanted or malicious applications at regular intervals of time. It gives enough time between each download so that previous downloaded programs can fully install, and potentially in an effort to go unnoticed (due to excessive CPU utilization when it is downloading malware and unwanted programs).

Known file names include:

PSoft1.exe
Ps1.exe
The various known adware/trojans downloaded by this trojan include, but are not limited to:

Adware-aBetterintrnt
Application Downloader-KL
Generic Downloader.aa Trojan
Adware-DealHelper
Adware-WebSearch
Adware-EliteBar
Adware-BkdSpace
Adware-Apropos
Adware-PortalScan
Application VirtualBouncer
* All of the above adware, applications, and trojans are detected by McAfee™.

Upon execution it creates a registry key

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\PSoft1
The overall affect on the infested machine will be lots of pop-ups, many toolbars will be added to IE, keywords typed in the search area may be hijacked to show advertisements and many URLs may be dropped on desktop and added to favorites in Internet Explorer prompting to download AntiSpyware products or play casino games.






HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\PSoft1 .....should i delete that? i know your not really supposed to go into the hotkeys or the regkeys.. btw what are they exactly?
