ive recently encountered a new virus/spyware on my pc that is rather annoying, the visual things i notice it doing is constantly minimising my warcraft while im playing and opening up the occasional explorer advert. i brought up taskmanager and noticed a new process called ijdnNU0q.exe, and sure enough when i ran my virus and spyware programs they picked it up and removed it. but 30 minutes later its back on. ive tried different programs to get rid of it, and even found the actualy files and tried deleting them for it to only come back 15 minutes later. anyone encountered it or know how i might be able to get rid of it without doing a OS reinstall
Yell

do a search on combofix..  It does a damned good job on the stubborn ones.  Not a replacement for Spybot / Adaware etc though, use along with them..

What VC are you using? 

Avast! has a good boot-time-scan system which will do a full disk scan before windows boots so can nuke those really hard to get rid of virii.
