Greetings. I have a Trojan that is resistant to removal. I have run Malabytes Anti-Malaware (this originally detected it), and it is not able to remove (it indicates it is removed, but on rescan, two items are repeatedly detected in the registry). I also followed instructions on an old forum post and downloaded ATF-Cleaner and ran it in safe mode, followed by a full scan using the free version of SuperAnti Spyware. Despite those actions, the infection persists.

I have downloaded DDS and run it, and am attaching the two text files that it produced to this posting. Thanks in advance for your assistance!

I have remedied this issue. I don't know how to delete or close a topic, and I don't want to waste valuable time of those who provide assistance, so I am posting a reply to my post to indicate that I no longer require assistance.

Thanks to all on BleepingComputer for all that you do in combatting viruses and malware!
