05/11 - Problem begins, possibly through a download. Symptoms: Many popups, the virus launches instances of IE, virus downloads icons to desktop. Most noticably, the computer becomes very slow - all actions take a long time to complete, especially when connected to the internet, but also when working offline. I run a scan on Norton Antivirus - it detects the threats as "Trojan.Vundo" and "Downloader.MisleadApp", but cannot remove. Virus has removed all System Restore points before the date of infection.
06,07,08/11 - Attempts are made to solve the problem. I download an array of different scanners recommended by yourselves and others. I remove some of the adware and popup threats such as cookie files. One file - "C:\WINDOWS\system32\mljgh.dll", when using HijackThis v2.0.0 - returns after any attempt to delete it via the directory or a scanner. I cannot delete this file.

When using the latest version of HijackThis, as below, the file does not even appear, but the symptoms persist!

Hello El_Core,

Some malware like Vundo, hide from HijackThis when it is under it's default name. Please rename HijackThis.exe to Useless.exe and post a new log for review.
