Hey guys I have recently have been hit with a virus on my desktop and I'm having a bit of trouble knocking it out completely.

Im am lead to believe its mainly Mal ware.

The main things that im hit with are called

And the one I cannot get rid of

Now I have used Malwarebytes first it found a bunch of stuff and said it cannot remove some things because there are in systems and in use so they only can be removed on restart

Malwarebytes failed to completley remove it from my computer.

Other programs i have run to attemt to get rid of it is Spyware Search&Destroy
and my CA Anti Spyware and Ca Anti Virus programs.

All failed to completely remove the infection that is harming my beloved desktop.

Now the latest program I attempted to use which seemed to work the best was UnHackMe alas I though that I had finally removed the threat, how mistaken I was.

The program is succesful in removing 99% of the problem but I am left with one program that continues to haunt it

It is seen as Nxtepad.exe and 1% the Nxtepad.exe is associated with the notepad.exe from what it tells me.

Please if anyone knows how to get rid of this problem let me know.

If theirs any information that I might have left out that you need to know to assist me don't be afraid to ask

I am also leaving out that i have a recurring error message that reads C:\windows\system\xccef090131.exe is not a valid win32 application

I am aware that xccef090131.exe is an infection.

Just to let you guys know i posted this exact log in other forums because i tried sticking to one and i never got a response and i need to get this fixed as soon as possible because my computer
is very important to career.

I know i havent posted my HiJack this log because in some of these forums im supposed to be requested by an admin or high ranking subscriber, whoever can help please do.

Looking Forward to your assistance,
