Every time I reboot my computer, a new directory labeled common is created and placed in C:program files with helper.dll in it. I can delete it, but it just recreates itself everytime I reboot. How can I get rid of this? I have read that this can be disguised as a trojan that can retreive banking info, but it says that it is usually in the c:windows/system directory, which in this case it isn't, as far as I know.
I have scanned my computer with my Trend Micro Internet Security and no trojans are found and the adware/spyware that is found, supposedly is removed. I get a few popups like nexplore, and virus remover 2009, so I am pretty sure my computer has something on it that I'm not aware of. Just not sure what else I can do at this point. I have cleared all cookies, and temp internet files, etc.
Also, what virus scan/spyware removal program is the best out there? I have always used Trend Micro, but I was just curious if anyone could give me advice on what to use in case there is anything better out there.
