We used Kaspersky and Trend Micro and it didn't work. Have any of you run in to this one before? I appreciate any suggestions.

I would scan the infected computer with HijackThis (http://www.download.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html) and analyze the log filefor suspicious entries.

:Ye I have had a couple of problems with it myself. I found the following pretty useful:If you locate and then proceed to delete these specific registry entries (regedit):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\RcpApi\"MachineNum" and also HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\windbg48.
You then need to make sure you block these urls:(replace [dot] in brackets with real dot)
I think that prehaps you should find and delete these files 2.
And you can proceed to restart your system.Hopefully this should help.The biggest irritation is that it just tends to keep on changing the file names ahhhh annoying!
I found that info here: http://www.pc1news.com/news/0236/srizbi-bot-how-to-remove-it-from-your-pc.html Srizbi Bot: How To Remove It From Your PC
and it may help you to also read http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/146017/srizbi_becomes_worlds_largest_botnet.html this pc article on
Srizbi Becomes world's largest Botnet.
I would also suggest the basics as well such as antivirus that is up to date , a decent firewall and prehaps reputable spyware software.
Good Luck Mate-hope this helps.:p
