Hi everyone,
I have been having an issue with a trojan. Everytime I start up windows it appears that a trojan that was previously removed by malwarebytes is reinstalled. here is what it is called in the log file: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\vehogizoba (Trojan.Agent)

everytime I run a full scan this item shows up. any help in removing this is appreciated.

oh I also was wondering if someone can give me some quick help on how to run the dds.scr file. Windows keeps asking me which program I want to open this with. I have no idea what program uses this.
