Poweliks Gen 4 Virus

Detected by F-Secure and said removed but this Virus is in the start up and is a loop. 3,000 messages so far about F-Secure removing this virus but it keeps reappearing over and over again. I have to minimize the f-secure message because its constant. How do I get rid of this Virus and message permanently?

In this case i would recommend building yourself a rescue-stick (https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/rescue-cd), boot from this and remove the infection. 

You could also try (depending on your OS version) booting to safe-mode with networking and see if you can launch f-secure or at least the web-based online scanner from there. If this fails > go for the F-Secure rescue-stick.
