What's this virus?

My friend thinks that she has a virus because her computer has been acting up but she said the most annoying thing is that the icons on her desktop and start menu are changed in the way they look. They appear jagged or fuzzy according to her. I told her to run Housecall and it said it found this virus

TROJ iefeats.a

Has anyone heard of that, it asked her to delete it, but it would not delete. I am not a virus or computer expert by any means, but I told her I would go over there sometime on the weekend to see if I can figure it out. Thought I would post here for some suggestions.

Download Spybot & Ad-Adware and use Housecall to do a system scan.

download avast for free - install it - before restarting the PC, update Avast - if it asks you if you want to perform a boot scan, say yes - if it doesn't ask, set it to perform a boot scan. Restart your PC and it should find and clean it.
