I can't answer directly, but I know that Symantec maintains a detailed library of virus-specific articles at it's web site... including removal information for some that can't be removed automatically with Symantec Antivirus.  Try looking there, if you don't get a better response here.

Try this


Removal tool:

Manual removal:
1>boot into safe mode
2>End the killer.exe process from the task manager
3>go to start->run
type attrib -s -h C:\windows\*.* press enter
go to the windows folder and create two files by name smss.exe and killer.exe
type attrib-s -h d:\*.* and so on for all drives
4>After typing for a particular drive..go to that drive and create these files..i.e smss.exe and killer.exe
IMPORTANT--do not double click to open the drives..
instead type the drive name in the address bar and navigate..
5>Restart your computer
6>that's all
