Here are several ways to find and stop this threat
A. Browse to the file location shown below. You may have to show hidden files and folders as the App Data Folder is a hidden folder. Learn how to at http://www.removevirus.org/show-hidden-files-and-folders . Now sort the files by date. You should only have 1-3 files that have been installed in the last day or so in this folder. Choose the file that most resembles the virus name traits and re-name the file. You can not delete a file while in use. However you now can re-boot your computer and then delete the file you re-named. Now you can run a full virus scan and should have control over your computer again.
B. Boot into Safe Mode and delete the file. Again look at the file path below. You can also boot into “safe mode with networking” and download Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. You will be able to install it and run the virus scan. Learn how to boot into safe mode here
C: Log-into another users account and see if you can delete the file. Again use the File Locations below to locate the file

Take note that the below file locations contain hidden files and folders. For instance the App Data folder is a hidden folder. In order to view these folders you will need to show hidden files and folders. Learn how to at http://www.removevirus.org/show-hidden-files-and-folders
