The botnet itself might be "indestructable" but removing it from a specific PC is no different than dealing any other MBR virus.

‘Indestructible’ rootkit rumours are greatly exaggerated! Stand down from high alert! | Naked Security

Kaspersky has had a free app for some time now called TDSS killer, it's sole purpose is to clean the TDL family of infections, it's likely it will take care of this one too.
