When I reboot my computer files show up in my Recycle Bin. They are usually titled RBF.tmp or RBE.tmp. Sometimes they are labelled/titled with numbers too.

I have done MS Malicious Software scans; I use Verizon Security Suite to do Virus and Spyware scans--and none of the scans give me any results about these files showing up in my Recycle Bin. The scans state that everything is fine.

Is there a deep scan I should do somehow?

Thank you,

You might have a virus that your anti-virus isn't picking up, no anti-virus program is perfect.

I don't know much about the detection rate with the anti-virus program you have but you can try Kaspersky's Online Scanner, I know that they are very well trusted. NOTE that this only a scanner and does not remove any threats it finds.

You can also post in the HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal
and have a someone there assist you. Before you do so though you would need to download HiJackThis and it would be best to create a folder in your C: drive labeled HJT so that you know where to access the program's logs and backups.

I second the idea of posting at the HJT forum. Should you do so, please read and follow all procedures posted for those intending to file a log.
