Hello and welcome aboard! :thumbsup:

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan -> http://www.sophos.com/security/analyses/trojvbdxp.html

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can still clean this machine but I cannot guarantee it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know if you want to try and rid it off the system.
Hi there, stranger!

It's up to you. Your system doesn't look like too badly infected (based on the HijackThis log, however, we'll use further analysis tools). Perhaps you would be fine with changing passwords etc and only using them on clean system 'til we get this figured -- in the case you want to try cleaning. :thumbsup:

I sort of freaked out after the response and decided to format and reinstall. Back to business with a clean machine! Thanks for doing what you do, I certainly apprecaite knowing you are out here in case I ever need to do a clean.
