I actually have two computers I'm working with and both of them seem to have the same type of viruse or spyware. Both of these computers are used to list products on ebay. Both have a suspicious service named ci that points to a file named c:\windows\system32\tcim.exe. On one of the systems I keep getting a popup with chinese writing that looks like an instant messenger program (but isn't) I had already run combofix and malware bytes antimalware as well as super antispyware but I can't get rid of it.

Here are my logs.

P.S. I also get a 0x0000008 blue screen on one of the systems in normal mode shortly after logging in related to ntfs.sys but it does not happen in safe mode.

So after fighting and fighting with this computer I finally gave up and reinstalled windows. I was able to get it removed from one computer using a combination of bartpe, combofix, malwarebytes, and manual removal of suspect things, but apparently this virus infects .exe files and if run, brings the virus back full blown.

I found info on it at the following site: LINK Edit: Fixed link.

I see many chinese, russian, and other sites talking about this but no one seems to have a fix.
