Hi guys!

I download a torrent infected. i was running bitdefender but he does not recognize the virus. the internet slow down, i run wireshark and see a lot of emails in/out. the winlogon.exe connect to a irc server port 65520 and a site under 80 port thsweb04.thsale.com. I cant remove this, i format the pc, install winxp sp3 fresh. when i run the wireless card driver, installs it, and connect to the provider, the virus come back trying to download more malware. so i install windows 7 build 7000 and now the virus come back in win7:

taskhost.exe TCP 54472 65520 Sent C:\Windows\system32\taskhost.exe Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
taskhost.exe 1840 TCP 54473 80 http thsweb04.thsale.com Established C:\Windows\system32\taskhost.exe Microsoft® Windows® Operating System

the system show various errors windows. im running a livecd to acess internet cause the os slows down the internet.

Thank very much sorry for the english.

If you formatted and reinstalled Windows then the virus would be gone. You must be reinfecting yourself somehow, maybe through a USB drive or non-system partition.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
