Microsft Security Essentials (which is actually pretty good and free) could spot it, but it was unable to actually remove the stupid thing. It was residing in a folder that was masked from Explorer and the command prompt too (not a "hidden" folder either, this was something deeper). I ended up using a Linux boot-cd to mount the drive from the outside where the folder was visible and then I nuked it from orbit.. it was the only way to be sure.
I know that my fiance downloaded & installed the malware back on the 2nd... hopefully I'm done with this crap for a while. There's a reason I use Linux whenever I have the choice
