SOS folks,

A folder C:\RECYCLER\ with multiple subfolders has been allocated on
my hard drive. I also found these folders on the USB memory, along
with an autorun.inf file. The computer hasnt displayed major
performance issues, although it has frozen at startup once or twice.
Today however it gave a blue screen and rebooted suddenly.
I may be mistaken, but trust me, this looks like a worm,
rootkit, or some kind of
threat. I need your help.

Prior to writing here, I have read multiple posts on this forum,
and I have used the otmoveit removal tool to try to remove this bugger. Some subfolders
were removed, but this folder remains however:


On the other hand,
I also ran the FlashDisinfector.exe, and looks like the USB is now clean.

As additional background info, on 03/30,
AVG found 49 threats, all of them named temp.Htt,
all of them successfully deleted by AVG.

Looks like you are pretty busy, I have noticed a lot
of new posts. Any help will be appreciated.
