Download and run hijackthis, paste the logfile here and find the reference to it. Then paste what you've found to us.

It may have any amount of references. Just guessing, I would install CCleaner, boot into safemode and see if you can disable it in processes, services and anywhere else it might be coming from. You might need to disable or stop the process/service first though.

Reading online, it seems to be linked to bitcoins. I would get rid sharpish.

I've forgotten more about broadband than I care to remember.

A combination of malware bytes
http://www.malwarebytes.org

& Norton Internet Security
Trial for 90 days at http://buy-download.norton.com/downloads/OEM/20.1/NI...

Always gets me sorted.

Any decent virus will not be removable in MSCONFIG
Most of them disguise as something legit such as attaching to explorer.exe so the only solution is something like malware bytes.
