Hello, I downloaded a trojan from PirateBay. I'm positive I got it from this file: <http://thepiratebay.org/tor/4143310/Nero_8_Ultra_Edition_v8.3.2.1_LATEST_keygen__amp__plugins_serials>

//Mod edit: Link above disable to protect others.

It's been a real pain to remove. I tried AVG antivirus, Spyware doctor, Ad Aware, and various registry sweeps.

It puts weird files in my Startup. For example: Startup Item: "BM93ca57a4"; Manufacturuer: "Unknown"; Command: Rundll32.exe "C:\Windows\system32\qnvxtayg.dll",s; LOCATION: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

But when I disable in startup, it ALWAYS comes back.

The most annoying effect is that it slows down and stops my browsing. Sometimes New York Times won't load. Also, I can't run SEARCHES in google. That is, I can go to http://www.google.com, but searches won't load.

I'm running Vista Home Edition.

Here's my hijackthis log:
