I have a virus called Windows XP Repair that is masquerading as a repair program.

Symptons:-
Task Manager disabled showing message "Task Manager has been disabled by your Administrator"
Start menu>All programs is empty.
All files in C Drive are hidden. I can change the folder view settings so I can see them but it's very annoying.

Action taken:-
Found file in System Configuration>Startup called mLVrrSBWxbwm(C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\mLVrrSBWxbwm), found it in the C drive and deleted it. I cannot however find the file in RegEdit, which says it is in SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\currentVersion\Run.

Help would be very much appreciated. Do I need to post the OTL logs?

Yes please post both logs. This bug likes to hide the missing links in a folder called smtmp in %temp% so hopefully you have not run anything which will clean the temp files.

%Temp% can vary between operating systems. It is usually a hidden system file located ib ..\yourloginname\appdata\local\temp\ If you can it would be wise to save (not move) the folder to your desktop.
