Hi all.
I just got home from work. I started up my pc and i have 2 new shortcuts on my desktop. Also, there is a yellow banner that keeps apearing st the top of my screen. It's written in arabic, so i have no idea what it means. I tried a superantispyware scan, it did not help. Also tried Malwarebytes full scan.
Any suggestions ? I attached a screenshot, I think. Yes i'm a total noob.

The one shortcut is called "harf", it's an htm file. The other is a thumb called "yahood"
You can see them on the screenshot.

The only common denominator between those two objects that I can find has to do with Islam. Does that ring any bells?
Try searching for the files and run a Jotti scan on them

Just finished a malwarebytes scan in safemode. Found many instances of a worm called "worm.malas" and one called "worm.p2p". Have a look at the log file please.

Hi. Ok run these next and hopefully we will be good.

Next run ATF and SAS:

Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining
.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opera browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program
.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
Click Close to exit the program.


Then Rerun MBAM like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.


Please ask any needed questions,post 2 logs and Let us know how the PC is running now.

Hi.
Ok. I just finished a running a NOD32 (Trial version) scan. I didn't see Your post before doing that. It seems to have made things better. How should I go about confirming If I am clean ?
