Just had the same issue with a client PC. It is spyware and adware. Running spybot and anti virus software removed some of the problems, my control panel came back as did msconfig but the error was still there, I had to manually remove the virus alert warning from the registry where it had attached the warning to the time format. I removed all the problems tested the machine - returned it to the client he managed to get the errors back looks like a full format and re-install of the OS :(

Don't you believe it. In only a small minority is it the case where things have gotten bad enough that one needs to reformat.
There are tools around that can completely remove this infection.

I totally agree crunchie. In fact my feeling is much of the time a reformat becomes necessary it isn't the malware or infection that finally makes it necessary but too much "playing around" with either the wrong tools or some "off the wall" registry "fixer" program.
This appears to be a variant of VideoAccessCodec adware.
SDFix is certainly worth a try here.
SDFix Instructions from Bleeping Computer:

1. Please print these instructions as they will be needed later when Internet access is not available.

2. Logon to your computer with an account that has Administrator privileges.

3. Download SDFix.exe and save it to your desktop.
Confirm that the file SDFix.exe now resides on your desktop, but do not double-click on the icon as of yet. We will use it in later steps.
4. Now, double-click on the SDFix icon that should now be residing on your desktop. If a Open File - Security Warning box opens, click on the Run button.

5. A window will open asking where you would like to install SDFix to. Do not change anything and press the Install button. This will install the program into the default location of C:\SDFix. At this point, you should not run SDFix, but instead continue to the next step where you will reboot into safe mode.

6. Next, please reboot your computer into Safe Mode by doing the following:

1. Restart your computer

2. After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.

3. Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear

4. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

5. When you are at the logon prompt, log in as the same user that you had performed the previous steps as.

7. When your computer has started in safe mode, and you see the desktop, close all open Windows.

8. Click on the Start button, click on the Run menu option, and type the following into the Open: field:

C:\SDFix\RunThis.bat

Then press the OK button.

9. The SDFix window will open containing some brief info and a disclaimer on the use of the tool.
If you want to continue, please press the Y key on your keyboard and then press enter.

10. SDFix will now start scanning your computer for known infections
This process can take a while, so you may want to do something else and periodically check back on the status of SDFix. As the scanning process continues you will continue to see new messages on the screen.

11. When the scanning process has finished you will see a new screen stating that you need to restart your computer in order to continue.
At this point you should press any key on your computer's keyboard in order to restart the computer.

12. When your computer reboots, you will be presented with a screen stating that SDFix has finished.
At this point you should press any key on your computer's keyboard in order to continue to your desktop.
13. When you are back at your Windows desktop, the SDFix log will automatically be opened in notepad.
Save that log and post back here with it along with a new HJT scan completed AFTER the running of the SDFix.

Have you still got the VIRUS ALERT! infection? I've succesfully removed it from a couple of laptops so if you need any help let me know.

0

To remove this type of infection I usually just run these main tools. Counterspy(trialware remove when finished), Spybot S&D(Freeware), Ad-aware se personal. And malwarebytes.
These in combination have usually resolved the problem... Sometimes there are rootkits and other nasty registry based infections that cannot be removed in a conventional manner and that is what the specialized tools are for.
Fake alerts like this are very annoying and sometimes I get disgusted by them and throw in the towel and perform a full OSRI
Best of luck to you.

this virus doesnt delete with normal program like hijack this or malebytes or anything you have to manually DELETE this file in your C: drive. I deleted it on 1 login on my laptop and its fine, the other one still is infected. its hard to get to the C: so i hope you have a folder or a shortcut on your desktop you can use to access your HD. trying to find exactly what i did then i could post it. but no you do not need a reformat good luck

This thread is 4 months old. Original poster never returned. We don't know WHAT for certain the infection was so offering solutions on an unknown infection really isn't that helpful.
It is recommend here that persons begin HERE and follow all instructions and then post all the requested logs including a HiJackThis log, with the scan done AFTER all other steps have been completed.
