    Here is a bit of the info on the trojan:

    This malicious parasite, which was written in VBScript language, is a very annoying trojan, able to become a reason of various difficulties for the user of infected PC. Bingo Trojan acts by changing different registry entries, which are responsible for Windows desktop, Internet Explorer and several other important system components. In the result of this pest's activities, the desktop may become hidden and several important options may become disabled.

    If you are using Vista there is a Malicious Software Removal Tool in there, see if you can use that first.
