ok so a computer looks like it is infected with a (new?) version of nimda

nimda account appears on windows login screen
no directory associated with it in \docume~1

at least one really long .sys file was loading up (even in safe mode) something like ff823478902346278346237904.sys

removed it under linux (heart ntfs-3g)

computer was bluescreening upon boot, that has been resolved

but it will not allow the newest version of smitfraudfix to run (gives a random windows error as if the exe is corrupted)
got the last version of smitfraudfix to run but it didnt clear much up

there were at least 3 randomly named dlls. opened them in a notepad under erdcommander, emptied contents, saved. upon reboot, would get a dll error under its name for ever new process i attempted to run

anyway my point is this

it refuses to allow sdfix to decompress
refuses to allow combofix to run

whenever you open a directory with hijackthis in it, it closes the folder
attempting to run hijackthis from a dos prompt kills the hijackthis process AND the command prompt

does this malwarebytes program hold the key? or is there something else i should do?
