MSE & Defender Found virus: DOS/Rovnix.V     Can not clean/remove 




I tried over and over and MSE finds the virus, prompts to clean or remove.

Goes thru the motion of cleaning and then comes back with Status   ( Not Found)




I scan again and defender does the same thing while booting from a boot able

DVD with defender loaded.




Is this virus so new there is not a cleaner for it?




It was first published/ detected Nov 20 2013




I am using definitions from Today 11/25/13




MSE cleaned up all other viruses brought on by a user accidentally allowing the virus / ransom ware 

"Antivirus Security Pro"  onto their computer which was the start of the nightmare.




It infected the PC and MSE & Defender cleaned all but this Rovnix.V




There is not much on the web about this virus, Microsoft says it is a severe threat, and I think

it has variants named:

virus: Win32/Rovnix.D

virus: Win32/Rovnix.gen!B




Any help would be appreciated




Thanks in advance...
