I'm running Vista, Symantec Endpoint Protection, and constantly have DWH*.TMP files recreating themselves in C:Users\B...\AppData\Local\TEMP.

Symantec quarantines the files as Downloader.Swif.C virus. however, they continually reappear. This evening I had over 4500 of the puppies. They are gone now, but will come back for no apparent reason.

Symantec has no clue, Norton didn't help. Trend Micro and McAfee online scans didn't detect anything. Adaware was ineffective, Windows Defender has lost it's anatomy. And while I'm not suicidal, I have a definite urge to hurt something, and would hate to lose everything on my hard drive to this nasty bug.
