I know it was stupid but I downloaded CS3. My battery started to expire pretty quickly so I figured it was a trojan but nothing appeared in my scans. Then I uninstalled the and deleted the CS3. That's when my scan started coming up with hundreds of instances of trojans. I quarantined and deleted the files but still more and more. I am unable to find it through the hijack this scan but was wondering if anyone could take a look at the log and give me input, please? I'll post the log if/when I hear back from one of you. Thanks.

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.

Hello mashedup.

The entry MalwareBytes found was only a leftover.

Could you please tell us what your antivirus flagged, and what detection it was?

With Regards,
The Panda

What did you use to scan your computer that found the infections?

i'm using a symantec corporate client to do the scan. the scan results indicated that there were a whole host of tmp files that were infected. The initial results showed about 20 infected temp files. they were quarantines and deleted but have continued to multiply. (i have my settings set to dump my temp files when i shut my browser window btw.) The files are very random looking: DWH899.tmp and random letter combinations like that. Found in c:/users/admin/appdata/local/temp.

I should add that a few days ago I rcvd an invite email from a colleague, asking me to join his linkedin network. after I clicked that, IE opened dozens of pages. i shut down, rebooted in safemode and did a scan (with symantec) as well as hijack this. IE functioned fine after that but then the number of trojans found increased significantly. Everything else seems to be fine except the battery suckage and well, the daily scan results.

Update: My scheduled daily scan ran this morning and I had approximately 43 trojans detected. Anyone have thoughts?
