thanks for your reply and I really appreciate your efforts. Since, I had to keep it under check - i tried various stuffs and finally there are no alerts now and the system is fairly stable but still am not sure whether i have deleted all the malwares fully or somehow kept them under check ... as all steps i did were purely instinctive ( these i did more out of an urge to get out of the situation )and i jus followed my logic ( so am nt sure ) .. i will tell you what i did and whatz the effect it is having now ... can you please provide feedbacks ...


1. downloaded 'trojan remover 6.7.9' and 'Autorun Eater v2.4' and 'USB disk security' from softpedia and got them installed.
2. then ran eset online scan and it caught some and deleted them
3. then ran autorun eater to rename all the autorun.inf to autorun.inf.vir
4. used the trojan remover to remove all those trojans it could remove and rename which it could not delete
5. used USB disk security to remove the trojans that were actually the source for my misery and for future protection ( caught them from my pendrive... about 3 trojans) .. (this i did on the suspicion that my pendrive could be the only cause) ..
6. created a restore point after all this ( before restarting my pc)

after i restarted ( till now .... for 6 days) - my pc 'looks' fairly stable and not even 1 such pop up from then...

please pour in your comments on what i did !!!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

My name is Syler, I will be helping you to solve your Malware issues. Whilst I am helping you, I would
be grateful if you would note the following:
  • Please do not run other tools or scans unless I ask you to and follow all the steps I give you, in order.
  • Copy and paste all logs requested in you reply, Do not attach them unless asked too.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask before you proceed with my instructions.
  • Please continue to work with me, until I tell you your machine appears to be clean. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If I do not hear back from you within 5 days of my last post, then this topic will be closed.

Peer-to-Peer Programs Warning
Your log shows that you are using so called peer-to-peer or file-sharing programs (in your case uTorrent). These programs allow to share files between users as the name(s) suggest. In today's world cyber crime has come to an enormous dimension and any means is used to infect personal computers to make use of their stored data or machine power for further propagation of the malware files. A popular means is the use of file-sharing tools as a tremendous amount of prospective victims can be reached through it.

It is therefore possible to be infected by downloading manipulated files via peer-to-peer tools and thus suggested to be used with intense care. Some further readings on this subject, along the included links, are as follows: File-Sharing, otherwise known as Peer To Peer and Risks of File-Sharing Technology.

It is also important to note that sharing entertainment files and proprietary software infringes the copyright laws in many countries over the world and you are putting yourself at risk of being indicted through organizations watching over the rights of the authors of such files (i.e. the RIAA for music files, or the MPAA for movie files in the USA) or the authors of the files themselves.

Naturally there are also legal ways to use these services, such as downloading Linux distributions or office suites such as "Open Office."

It is your decision whether or not you wish to keep your program(s). However, please refrain from using them until your computer has been declared clean.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Note: If you already have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, just update then run it.

  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and Paste the entire report in your next reply .
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediatly.

  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
