VBS Freelink virus help...please

I don't use Outlook and I don't open attachments so I'm gonna kill my friend the next time I see him because that's the only reason why I have this crap on my computer.



I looked up a few pages on Google, and followed the instructions, but EVERY time I start up my computer, a small window still pops up saying "Virus detected: VBS_FREElink". And that's all. When I look up the regestry for the file that I'm supposed to delete, " Rundll Rundll32.vbs" , I don't find that, but I find " Rundll Rundll32.exe" ...is that what I'm supposd to delete. I really don't know anything about cleaning this. I have PC-cillin virus scanner but it doesn't seem to be getting rid of this....can anyone help me??

You could try their online virus scanner: HouseCall. Also, here's some manual removal instructions from Trend Micro.
MANUAL REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
Delete the Rundll.vbs file in the \windows\system directory.
Click Start | Run. Then, type regedit. Press OK.
On the left pane, go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current version\Run
Delete the key: Rundll=Rundll.vbs
Delete all files detected as VBS_FREELINK.
If neither option works for you or you can't find the relevant information on your machine, try posting a copy of a log from HijackThis.
