      No my friend, I am affraid that this nasty virus also attacks the registry entries heavily. As you see above, I have personally tested it on a Virtual Drive and besides manually removing every object including the many modified registry entries on the affected computer. So yeah, uninstalling, removing, the damn thing reappears, i have already tested it and tried that and I GUARANTEE simple shift+del wont cut it for ya. You need to either scan this thing with something that can locate everything or perform the following steps:

      1. Use deletion software like Delete Doctor to manually remove all of the files.
      2. Use a Registry cleaning script like the one in the link below to fix your registry entries, after you have manually found and deleted alll the registry entries, ofcourse.

      There are several ways to find registry entires, the main of which is to scan your computer with an anti-malware tool and get a log which has all of them and look for them manually. There are also other ways like analyzing what each component of the installer does or looking for the registries online if someone else has analyzed them, like Symantec researchers, for example, but it is time costly.
