Got this from a memo here at MSU:

1. Temporarily Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
2. Update the virus definitions.
3. Reboot computer in SafeMode
4. Run a full system scan and clean/delete all infected file(s)
5. Delete/Modify any values added to the registry.
Navigate to and restore the following registry subkey if necessary:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Shared Access\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\DomainProfile\AuthorizedApplications\List
6. Exit registry editor and restart the computer.
7. In order to make sure that threat is completely eliminated from your computer, carry out a full scan of your computer using AntiVirus and Antispyware Software.

The memo also suggests that an on-line scanner will do the trick since W32virut.cf only kills resident AV programs - not programs run through a browser.

Unfortunately, I have tried this and it didn't work. I eventually used Antimalbytes, trojan remover, super antispy to and PSEXCSI to find all the infected files. The infection was located in Creative audio shortcuts. I deleted them and the next thing I couldn't reboot in normal or safe mode. So obviously the virus had infected the operating system and I now need to start all over again.
