MSE & Defender Offline 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 with MSE and after attempting to clean it prompts me that there is still a security threat and that I need to go online and download additional resources - MSE links me to the " Defender Offline Bootable DVD/USB Installation Utility". When
I boot to the new Defender Offline DVD it scans and did find another two viruses --  1) TrojanSpy:Win32/Ursnif.HF (Which it removed)  and 

2) virus: DOS/Rovnix.V (Which it could not remove) 

I reboot and re-scan and defender only finds virus: DOS/Rovnix.V again, and after taking actions to clean the infection it shows green and say's " your actions were applied successfully" and the status shows (file not found) - I click on "close" then reboot
and re-scan and the same thing happens all over again.   




 Potential threat details - virus: Win32/Rovnix.D  - Clean PC - " your actions were applied successfully" and the status shows (file not found)   But is still there on re-scan




MSE was already installed prior to infection and up to date, no other virus software

existed on this system 




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...
