after stupidly downloading some software to unzip a passworded .rar file, my system has been running slower than usual and every five minutes a random internet explorer popup advertising diet pills comes up. I disabled inernet explorer by enabling a proxy server and making the address this stops the popus, but in the task manager i can see a process running called IEXPLORER.EXE that uses a whopping 80,000k of system memory. I looked around on google and this site said that this troj_obfuscat disguises itself pretending to be IEXPLORER .
so heres my log and i hope someone can tell me which regs to fix because all of my games and stuff are running really slow and i need to do make this complicated animated powerpoint presentation for school and its really hard to do with the animations running so slow.

i have run mcaffee, lavasoft adaware, and a housecall anti-virus. they all find something along the lines of troj_obfuscat and supposedly fix it, but whenever i reboot IEXPLORER comes back. Argh.

* Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these if they still present.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [proc meet] C:\DOCUME~1\jahan\APPLIC~1\SOFTWA~1\CopyMemoMove.exe

* After you check the items, close all browsers and windows, except for HijackThis, then click on the Fix Checked button on HijackThis.

* Boot into safe mode: Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

* Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files:
Click Start. Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.

Under the Hidden files and folders heading select "Show hidden files and folders".
Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
Uncheck the "Hide file extensions for known file types" option.
Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.

* Delete the following folders:

C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\jahan\APPLICATION DATA\SOFTWA~1 <== the folder that begins with the characters 'SOFTWA'

* boot back to normal

* Please run Notepad and copy the following text into a new file:

dir %Windir%\tasks /a h > files.txt
notepad files.txt

Save the file to the desktop as findjobs.bat and make sure the "Save as Type" field says "All Files". Then please go to the desktop and double-click on findjobs.bat, notepad will pop-up, post the content of it here with a new hijackthis log.
