userinit.exe infected by koobface worm

Recommended Posts

Somehow I became infected with worm.koobface and a few others viruses. The other viruses were deleted successfully with malwarebytes but 2 files remain with this koobface worm that keep coming back

The two items are labeled as:

HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit

data: c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

All the information I looked up about it talks of other processes and files completely different than this 'userinit' infection. The thing is I researched this virus and never once clicked a suspicious link that i can recall, but browsing the net today windows media player opened by itself to which i immediately closed, dont know if thats related or not.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
