Posted 05 June 2008 - 11:22 PM

My antivirus has been reporting a file that continues to pop up several times while the computer idles (it only seems to happen during that time).

This is the name of the file

a0053332.exe

I have run my system through various spyware and anti-virus programs to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for returning your information, the screenshot is of an infected System Restore file. What likely has happened is Trend Micro has removed the bad item but it can not remove the backup in the protected SR files, though it can see it and identify it.

I am not seeing malware in the HJT log, let's do this:

1) C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Common\ViewpointService.exe
For your information, Viewpoint is installed by aol probably without your knowledge. I suggest you uninstall this resource waster in Add Remove programs.
http://www.greatis.com/appdata/u/v/viewmgr.exe.htm
http://www.spywareinfo.com/newsletter/arch...4.php#viewpoint
http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546

2) Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Reboot

Turn ON System Restore,
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

3) Run Clean Manager
http://spyware-free.us/tutorials/cleanmgr/

Restart the computer, update Trend Micro and run a system scan. Remove what it finds and let me know of anything it can not remove.

Thanks

Ok, I did all of that, and so far so good. Should I post another HJT log?

You can post one, but I am more interested in the results of the Trend Mcro scan.

MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)
I also suggest you update to Internet Explorer 7 if just for the additional security it will give you.

I was able to remove everything. It was just a few spyware cookie type things, and a few jpg's, oddly. But I got it all removed.
