    if this virus is indeed the choke virus, it will create files called c:\choke.exe, c:\shootpresidentbush.exe, c:\about.txt and c:\dalist.txt. first stop choke (by pressing ctrl-alt-del, selecting "Choke" and clicking "End task"), then delete these and you should be ok.

    sometimes it will modify the registry, adding values to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. just delete any entries here that reference "choke.exe" or "shootpresidentbush.exe"

    Further information can be found here.
