I had gotten a Tidserv virus about 10 days ago. I was able to get rid of it with "tdsskiller" (though the computer's now slow and I'm slowly fixing those problems). It's a rootkit virus that attacks anti-virus software at first so that you can't use antivirus software (then it attacks .dll files, the desktop, the registry, and it hides itself so that even if you use an antivirus software on a hard media it won't find it, and it first came around about DEC of 2008, but it's had a huge re-appearance since June. It's really nasty and destroys everything.
I thought maybe I had gotten it from one of the "forum" sites I visited....Bengals Jungle, this one...or maybe Rotoworld, but I actually believe it came through "Google Images", as Google had just changed their "images" format, and it occurred immediately after I had looked up something there. I figured Google had a hole in it that was discovered by the hackers. The hackers come from China on this particular "tidserv" virus.
