As soon as a user logs in to their roaming profile Mcafee is reporting an infected file (Generic.dx) c:\windows\document and settings\user\Application Data\RBInternetEncodings600.dll. There are several files including the a fore mentioned one that repopulate after a user logs off then back on. These are roaming profiles and I did delete the suspect files on the server before logging the user back on. The following files are located in the Application Data directory of the user: RBInternetEncodings600.dll, rbap550.dll, RBRegEx550.dll, RBScript600.dll, RBShell555.dll, RBSSLSocket550.dll, RBXML550.dll. They are easily deleted but come back after logging back on.
I did turn the system restore off and have tried the following tools to try to fix the apparent problem: McAfee antivirus program and the online version, Trend Micro online scanner, Adaware free, Malwarebytes Anti-malware, Hijack this, and SuperAntiSpyware. The problem has now spread to a total of 3 computers on our network. Do I need to disconnect these machines while I try to find a remedy? I really need to get a handle on this as soon as possible. I am going to attach the log file from hijackthis but also have the logs from the DDS tool from this site. I appreciate any help you can provide. The other thing I am trying to figure out is what is putting and recreating the dll's, so far no luck. Is there any tools that show the dependencies for a given dll?

This has been resolved. The newest dat file for our version does not like the version of 4sight fax client software we run.
