If you flatten your system it will get rid of it.

Have you tried the Hijack This forum? The members there are expert at the removal of malicious software.

You should also try to figure out why you got infected in the first place. I say this because if you do rebuild your computer you could re-infect your self after- for example if you have a peace of software that has a Trojan bound to it and you reinstall it after the build then you are back to square one.

If I were in this situation I would utilise the HT forum (but thatís just me), and as a bonus you may even learn something off of the S.M.A.R.T members- which is never a bad thing.
