As long as you've got decent Anti-Virus software such as ZoneAlarm Anti-Virus, AVG, Kaspersky, or AVIRA (to name a few) they should detect it in a scan and allow you to treat it when done.

To do it manually..........

  1. Delete Infected Files

    • 1

      Click on the "Start" menu.

    • 2

      Click on the "Search Files and Programs" box, then type "Desktop.ini."

    • 3

      Right-click on the file that appears in the results list, then click "Delete."

    End Infected Processes

    • 4

      Press "Ctrl + Alt + Delete."

    • 5

      Click on the "Task Manager."

    • 6

      Click on the "Processes" tab.

    • 7

      Right-click on "Desktop.ini," and click "End Process."
