VIRUS WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!

I just spent the last ten hours trying to remove a virus from my computer.  I don't know how old this is, but I am reading up on it and it seems relatiively new.  It is called the Microsoft Security Essentials Alert virus.  It fakes you out by making a fake version of Microsoft Security Essentials Alert.  Then it basically hijacks EVERYTHING that has an .exe file attached to it.  You can't open ANYTHING!  It is so aggravating.  I used Norton and Spybot to pull certain parts of it out so that I could at least us my Run command.  Then I ran 'msconfig' and did a selective startup until I was able to weed out the startup things it had put in my PC.  Oh yeah, and the System Restore doesn't work either with it. 

Makes for an awesome afternoon.  I thought I'd warn you all to watch out for this thing.
