I am running windows xp on my desktop and recently noted that when I boot my computer a box named "common" comes up with a file called "helper.sig". Previous recommendations from a google search suggest downloading brute force unistaller (bfu.exe) and deep dive (deepdive.bfu). When I went to this website http://www.merijn.org/files/bfu.zip I couldn't find the files to download. Any other suggestions?

Hello, yes those tools are some of what's needed. They should NOT be run without supervision. Best that you post a HJT log and have them run the needed tools with you. so yuo don't render your PC useless.
