    "Msgfix.exe",this file will renew after i deleting it under safe mode.And it would create "IUSR_user name" and "IWAM_user name" guest user in my Win2000 system!And other virus files in my system:winsmss.exe; winsmss.exe; wincore.exe; winsys.exe; integitor.exe and so on. They r cannot be removed totally!!!

    See if this helps:- http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.gaobot.aus.html

    Are you using Norton AV? Have you tried doing a full system scan in safe mode?

    Also check and see if you have Registry changes referred to.

    Also you could try downloading and running Avert Stinger from here:- http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

    Different companies use different names, but I think McAfee calls this W32/Sdbot.worm.gen, in which case the latest version of Stinger should be able to deal with it. Run it in 'Safe' of course.

    I'm using MacAfee Super Dat command line scanner.
    Using the command prompt of Bart PE, which I booted from the CD drive,
    and the scanner succesfuly detected and removed the trojan Win32.Gabot.AUS
