Hi everyone,

I'm running Kaspersky Internet Security on Windows Vista Home Premium.

The image shows the trojans that have been recently detected and supposedly removed from my system.

Screenshot of Trojans detected

However every few days it then picks up another file and deletes it, normally from my windows sytem32 folder. A full scan with Spybot - Search & Destroy doesn't detect anything. I have Zone Alarm installed and I get a few strange internet access requests, which I have so far denied with no problems. Several of these files include ones from my System32 folder, but since I only installed Zone Alarm after suspecting a trojan I don't know which ones are system components and which could be infected files.

I also have started to get "Blue Screen of Death" errors after logging onto windows. (I think the error code was IRQ_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL) Normally they occur in the first 60 seconds of boot up, after the log on screen. They occasionally occur at other times. By comparing timings of the BSOD with logs in the windows event viewer I find the following error messages.

DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service MDM with arguments "" in order to run the server:

DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server:

DCOM got error "1068" attempting to start the service fdPHost with arguments "" in order to run the server:

DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service EventSystem with arguments "" in order to run the server:

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 8007043c from line 45 of d:\vistartm\com\complus\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

DCOM got error "1084" attempting to start the service ShellHWDetection with arguments "" in order to run the server:

I'm not sure if these are connected with the possible trojan infection, or perhaps simply a driver conflict or something? (No driver conflicts are shown in the device manager, though).

I was hoping someone could have a look at my Hijack This log and tell me if any suspect processes are running.

Many thanks in advance,
