Hi Huffen,

Following are my suggesstions-

1. Kaspersky one of the leading antivirus vendor has a removal tool which is Kaspersky Removal Tool; though size of the tool is bit bulky i.e. Around 80 MB. The good part of this tool is that it generates the report of scan in ver detailed manner and let you about each process on the system and has good feature to provide you with suggesstions like making the system more secure like disabling autorun, etc.

2. GMER tool. Search google and the first site that appears in the list is the one. It scans the system thoroughly and highlights the suspicious file, process in RED. It can detect any rootkit in installed in the system. It has also inbuilt capabilities for executing the registry, command prompt in case the worm has disabled the functionality. Ensure that this tool is executed in safe mode without network option.

3. COMBOFIX, a program that cleans all types of infections automatically. Even if for some reason if failed can help you to remove malware by giving you a extensive report.

I hope this helps!

I came across an error the other day that I suspected to be from some
form of malware, but I couldn't exactly pin it down. I googled the
process in question, srvpool.exe, but couldn't really find any
definitive answers. I ended up reimaging the computer just to play it
safe. But this whole experience made me start looking for some kind
of malware/virus database that contains information about known
malicious threats, but I couldn't really find anything. Is there
anything, aside from simply googling, that serves as a database or
wiki about known malicious software?
