Dell Inspiron Virus

User reported a hijack of the OS and a 3rd part app offering virus removal.

Upon running Spybot, CCleaner and Regmechanic I discovered the "Artemis" virus on his laptop.

There was a suspicious entry in the startup when I ran MSconfig so I removed that and it allowed me to run the resident AV.

Once it had quarantined the virus I was able to reboot and tidy up.

IE wasn't connecting to the internet but this was simply a blank proxy entry in the IE.
