I have two laptops.
#1 Dell XPS M1710 with MS Windows XP Professional, version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
I had Trend Micro Internet Security Pro running on this machine and originally it alerted me to an infection named "PE_Generic.DMS". This was eliminated. Then it alerted me to "A0033602.exe" located in: "C\SystemVolumeInformation\restore {268603C7-9708-4A28-B6FD-DA6C1BE44E5E}RP156\
Trend did quarintine a couple of PE files but did not do anything with the exe file. I could not locate it to manually remove. Also while I was re-organizing my favorites list the entire file dissappeared.
I have since switched this machine to AVG 8.5. AVG does not alert to the exe infection. However I am not nieve enough to belive that the infection has gone away.

Computer # 2:
Acer Model # ZG5 AspireONE
OS is Microssoft Windows XP Home Edition; version 2002; Service Pack 3.

This unit is still running Trend micro Internet Security Pro.
it also originaly listed the A0033602.exe. I also lost one file while working with it on this computer,
a recipe file.

I can not find any explanation on the internet anywhere as to what these infections are.

Could anyone guide me to a program that will remove infections and how to set it up.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.

MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.

  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.

On the Scanner tab:

  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.

Back at the main Scanner screen:

  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.

Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs


Thanks,

located in: "C\SystemVolumeInformation\restore

That is your System Restore folder
It's probably a corrupt restore point

Please continue with the mbam scan as asked for
