    You don't want to open it!

    Does you virus scanner have a context menu where you can scan a folder?

    Did you read the Google search results about the virus?

    Yes, it is a Microsoft file, probably modified and should not exist in the C:\windows\config directory.

    I checked my machines
    XP
    Vista
    Windows7

    Onle Server 2003 is the only one that had a confg directory, but there were no files in it.

    If Nod32 doesn't say it's infected, the the virus must have replicated the file into the C:\windows\config directory.

    As I stated earlier the Winlogon registry key should only be explorer.exe, no other parameters.

    Try going to Start > Run, and type msconfig and uncheck all boxes, then restart.

    You can remove the Java Adobe, and Nvidia entries,, but that's not going to solve the problem.

    Check the Start > All Programs > Startup folder also.

    Do you have a restore point you can go back to?

    well,

    You can either wait for someonne else to post a solution or re-install Windows 7.

    No problem,

    You might want to try downloading a spyware detector program and scan using that.

    You should always have one of these on your system along with your anti-virus software.
