Hey BleepingComputers. Recently after getting a virus (which I believe is removed) I noticed a process called "conime.exe" running. I had never seen this before. I ran MANY scans using different antivirus/malware detection & removal programs, and they all said my computer is clean, I also ran the scans on the conime.exe itself, and found nothing.

I read that this could be part of displaying the Japanese language, but being english, I never needed to use the Japanese language pack, or visit a Japanese website.

After finding nothing with the scans I assumed this was a legit conime.exe and went to bed. When I got up in the morning, and woke up my computer from sleep mode, I checked the Task Manager and noticed that multiple (approx. 10) conime.exe's were running. Each using only 56 k or 60 k of memory. I think there is still a virus someone within my system.

Here is a HijackThis log with the conime.exe process running. Please try to help, thanks. :thumbsup:
