Those appear to be Vundo.

Use Super Antispyware to find and remove the malware. Download, install and UPDATE in regular mode then reboot into safae mode to run the scan. Instructions for using SAS are in the link below.

Allow Secunia online scanner to scan your computer for missing security updates for all of your programs. Vundo is known to exploit older versions of Sun Java so after installing the latest version go to Add/Remove program and remove ALL older versions.

seeultr---You can follow the same instructions I gave to mother808.

You should start your own topic, though. One user, One topic. Makes it easier on everyone.

Allow MalwareBytes AntiMalware to remove whatever it finds and use Super Antispyware, also.

By pressing the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer beep when you reboot it, you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode. If it does not work on the first try, reboot and try again as you have to be quick when you press it. I have found that during boot up right after the computer shows you all the equipment , memory, etc installed on your computer, if you start lightly tapping the F8 key you will usually be able to get to the desired menu.

See info in link below if the above doesn't work for you.

Post the log from SAS.
UPDATE MBAM and run a quick scan with it. Post the log.

The longer you are online after the initial infection the more malware will get on your computer. You need to run both scans until they show no infection.

MBAM INSTRUCTIONS:
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.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.
