Does anyone have a solution for removing the Recycler virus?

New to the Community and hoping to find a way to remove the Recycler virus.  My attempts thus far have been frustrating.  I have basic computer skills and not much more and am hoping that this Community may be able to help me.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Does anyone have a solution for removing the Recycler virus?

This document from McAfee will get you started in resolving your issue. Please be sure to follow the recommendations and run the McAfee Stinger scan which is included to see if it removes it.

In the event nothing works then try to run the free version of this program http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php by downloading and checking for the latest updates and scan the computer and let it clean everything it finds and reboot the computer.
