Hi everyone, I've been having this problem for a little while now, I have a Acer Aspire laptop running on AMD Turion 64 1.6 GHz with 1GB of ram and 120GB hard drive, I'm not entirely sure how I got the program onto my computer but there's been a Flower.exe program running in the background stopping me from accessing a few other minor programs and my Task Manager. I've run a bunch of anti-virus/spy ware etc. programs but the only one that seems to pick it up, along with the 30-odd registry keys that it installs itself, is Malwarebytes' Anti-Mal-ware. The problem is that whenever I remove it with said program, or if I personally remove each registry key through regedit.exe and then the flower.exe program from my Task Manager (one of the reg. keys blocks access to it, so when deleted I can use it again) the program re-runs itself in a few minutes and re-installs all the registry keys. In my haste, and anxiousness to get rid of it a.s.a.p., I deleted the parent directory from the regedit.exe program HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options recently and so far I haven't encountered any problems. If anyone has had any experience with this program before and could help me in any way then I would be extremely grateful. Thanks in advanced

This issue will require further investigation. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a hijackthis log.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log" and complete all the steps. There are instructions for downloading and running Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) which will create a hijackthis log for you, or automatically download and install the most current version of HijackThis if it's not already installed on your computer.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
