Go to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of each suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) them one at a time for scanning/analysis.
-- Post back with the results of the file analysis.

I see them in processes, not as actual files <_>
They only come up if my comp is on for awhile.

I'm not sure what you mean. Where do you see them as processess...in Task Manager?
Where are they running from (full file path location)?

If they are in Task Manager, you can download and use Process Explorer, AnVir TaskManager Free or System Explorer to investigate them (as well as all running processes) and gather additional information to help identify where they are running from.

pnkbstra.exe is a process. This is usually installed with latest games like Battlefield 2142 and America's Army. This is usually detected as malware but if removed will effect the games installed especially when online.

http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/pnkbstra

SPEEDRUNNER.EXE - Dangerous

This Process Contains User Mode Rootkit Functionality


Looks like you have a nasty infection on your system as SPEEDRUNNER.EXE appears to be related to Virut/Virtob which is a file infector with IRC bot functionality. This type of malware can infect all .exe and .scr files, download more malicious files to your system, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. In many cases the infected files cannot be deleted and anti-malware scanners cannot disinfect them properly. When disinfection is attempted, the files become corrupted and the system may become irreparable.

Virut/Virtob is contracted and spread by visiting remote, crack and keygen sites. Those who attempt to get software for free may end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and a Repair Install will NOT help! Reinstalling Windows without first wiping the entire hard drive with a repartition and/or format will not remove the infection. The reinstall will only overwrite the Windows files. Any malware on the system will still be there afterwards. Starting over, reformatting the drive and performing a clean install removes everything.

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should immediately disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned. All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay and forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach.

There is no guarantee the infection can be completely removed. In some instances the infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be successfully cleaned or repaired. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read:

"When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?"
"Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?"
"Where to draw the line? When to recommend a format and reinstall?"

Should you decide not to follow that advice, this infection will require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. 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". In Step 9 there are instructions for downloading the HijackThis Installer and creating a log. This is an automatic setup version which will install the program in the proper location.

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.

That's what I thought and why I advised you here.

In case you need help with this, please review "How to partition and format a hard disk in Windows XP".

These links include step by step instructions:
"Clean Install Windows XP".
"Reformat & Clean Install Windows".
"XP Clean Install Interactive Setup".

Also see "How to keep your Windows XP activation after clean install". Don't forget you will have to go to Microsoft Update and apply all Windows security patches after reformatting.

If you need additional assistance with reformatting, you can start a new topic in the Windows XP Home and Professional forum.
