not only remains in the other partitioned Drive
but multiplies & get attached to every folder.

and if Internet Explorer is opened,
the Home page often sticks to http://www.mydreamworld.50webs(DOT)com
which can't be edited
also windows task manager ,windows system restore ,windows command prompt
& such facilities are disabled by the virus

Try to remove it in 'Safe Mode with Networking' That is where I would start.

system3_.exe is not a virus. It is malware. Boot to safe mode with networking and login as administrator and run Spybot S&D (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html), Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org) and Ad-Aware (www.lavasoft.com). After this, boot to safe mode with networking and login to your profile (i.e. bsmith) and run the scans there. After this, boot the normal way into your profile and run the scans again. Hackers like to put this stuff in multiple places. After the removal, run CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com) and clean up cookies, .tmp's, and clean the registry. After that, defrag your computer and then defrag your registry with the registry defrag tool offered for free by Auslogics (www.auslogics.com).
