The Rxbot/Spybot variant that I've seen recently had a couple of
startup hooks in the registry - "blah service" and value was
"xaxe.exe" or "bling.exe". It made no real effort to hide, and could
be removed by deleting startup keys, rebooting and then deleting the
file in system32 - no serious attempt at hiding.
