Hey guys...i had this very frustrating virus, and was going to do the' regedit' thing, I backed up my files to a another storage device and was going to reformat my HD and re-load Windows 7. But BEFORE I went through all THAT trouble, I was able to log off my administrator profile, go under the guest profile, and THEN use system restore once I used a administrator password.....worked great. Went back about a week and Pc is fine, gonna run Mallwarebytes just to be sure though...i hope this helps someone, It was very simple, quick, and kept me from my registry, reloading windows 7 etc etc.

Steps to uncheck that option :
In Windows Media Center--->click on "Settings"-->select "General"--->select
"Startup and Window Behavior"---> there we can find the option "Start Windows

If listed type "del adbcnsl.exe".
Goto Task Manager, Switch to "Processes" tab, click "Show processes from all users" button.
Locate "stdrt.exe" process, right click and select "Properties" menu.
In the properties window, make note of the "Location" in "General" tab.
Now kill that process.
Open the location where "stdrt.exe" is located and delete the file "stdrt.exe". Sometime it can be found under multiple folder inside temp folder starting with "mprt_".
Goto registry editor and search for "stdrt.exe", delete all the keys which contain that entry.
Now restart the machine and you should not be able to see the "stdrt" process.
