On an uninfected computer go to to download the removal tool. If you are running XP, disable system restore then run the file you downloaded and let it run its course.
If the tool won't run, restart the computer in Safe Mode then rerun the tool. When it has removed the threat, reboot the computer and run the tool again to make sure it removed the worm in its entirety. If you are using XP, re-enable system restore.

An evil. ambiguously named virus disguised as a virus protection had completely taken control of my computer. How do I get rid of it?

This is a conficker

Supposedly there are over 50,000 possible websites the conficker worm will try to contact when it activates, and there may be thousands of botnet computers that are passing it on to whoever is suckered into visiting those websites. But it has done nothing more than install itself and try to prevent its removal - and that will interfere with your use of the computer. What it does when it activates is unknown at this time.

People who have illegal or cracked copies of Windows XP or Vista cannot get critical updates from Microsoft and so they are the ones most likely to be constantly infected and affected.

If the Conficker worm is on a computer it can infect any USB drive plugged into it, and then when that USB drive is plugged into another Windows computer that has AutoRun enabled, the worm will infect the computer.

Make sure your computer has all of Microsoft's critical updates installed.

You can read what Wikipedia has to say:

Microsoft has short technical article here:

You can use Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool (if you have it) to scan your drive and USB drives for the files the worm uses and delete them:

Click Start
Click Run
Type MRT
Press Enter.
Download MRT from:

The Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool helps remove specific, prevalent malicious software from computers that are running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP, or Windows 2000

We are not paid for free slutions so would expect a good rating from you if you resolved your issue
