Hi guys!! I am desperate! please help me!! I don't have much experience in this, but I really need your help.

It all started when my internet connection failed after 10 or 15 minutes, then I had to restart my pc in order for it to connect again.
I called the internet company and they told me it was a virus, so that I should try another antivirus such as kaspersky.
I went into the website, and downloaded the free trial version, and it recognized a trojan called:trojan.win32.pakes.lxf and ajupascq.dll in the system 32. Finally it seemed to work and killed the bastard, and my internet connection started to work fine. But I wanted to have kaspersky now! so I went to www.mininova.org and downloaded a torrent for kaspersky internet security 2009 (8.0.0.546), when I was installing it a window like DOS window appeared with little lines (-) moving, and then the pc restarted by its own, I began to worry......then when I began to scan with the new kaspersky, it detected a bunch of trojans like: Backdoor.Win32.Hijack.ac; Heur.Trojan.Generic; Rootkit.Win32.Agent.der. The stupid DOS box continues to appear with different "names" like: ntvdm-46fc.4710.390002, but it changes.

I really don't know what to do!!! please help me!!!! I'm finishing my thesis so I really need my computer to work!!! please!!

Using any peer-to-peer (P2P) or file sharing program is a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, and exposure of personal information.

The reason for this is that file sharing relies on its members giving and gaining unfettered access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft, system infection and remote access exploit by attackers who can take control of your computer without your knowledge. Even if you change the risky default settings to a safer configuration, downloading files from an anonymous source increases your exposure to infection because the files you are downloading may actually contain a disguised threat. Many malicious worms and Trojans, such as the Storm Worm, target and spread across P2P files sharing networks because of their known vulnerabilities. In some instances the infection may cause so much damage to your system that recovery is not possible and a Repair Install will NOT help!. In those cases, the only option is to wipe your drive, reformat and reinstall the OS.

Even the safest P2P file sharing programs that do not contain bundled spyware, still expose you to risks because of the very nature of the P2P file sharing process. By default, most P2P file sharing programs are configured to automatically launch at startup. They are also configured to allow other P2P users on the same network open access to a shared directory on your computer. The best way to eliminate these risks is to avoid using P2P applications. Read P2P Software User Advisories, Risks of File-Sharing Technology and P2P file sharing: Anticipate the risks....

malware writters get more satisfaction by seeding a "cracked" antivirus like kasp's and integrating their infections in it

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

We do not condone pirated software but we don't need you infecting everyone else
First, uninstall Kaspersky as it is likely infected. We offer freeware replacements. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html
---------------------------------

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
