Dear brothers in BC

I am indebted to you all for the help and knowledge I am receiving from time to time from your end. It is a wonderful & selfless service you are doing to all the computer fraternity around the Globe and it is absolutely amazing. I have not only benefited by your expert advise but also have created awareness among all my friends about your website and the quality of advise one gets here. Needless to say that they all have become regular visitors to this site. Long live "Bleeping Computer" and wish you all the best.

Of late, for the past 4 to 5 days to be precise, I have been observing erratic behaviour in my laptop and realised that it must have been infested. Though it is a old laptop, it is not slow under normal circumstances.I have Nod32 Anti virus which normally loads at the startup and starts running. But since the infection, I saw that NOD32 took too much time to load. I also had Adaware in the system which also started to behave erratically. Whenever I went for definition update, an error message used to come. I could still manage to scan the computer using Adaware but it did not detect anything other than some MRU items.But NoD32 scan resulted in finding the Win32/PSW.OnLineGames.NNU trojan which was quarantined. But soon I realised that I could no more see my hidden & system files. This option is not working now. When I go to folder option> view> and select "show hidden files"... The selection again goes back to "Do not show hidden files".
Then I tried to view those hidden files by going to Search option> search all hidden files in all drives. I gave an option to search for all files created within the past couple of days and I got to see some new exe files & autorun files in both C & D drives. In my comp, the D drive itself is the primary drive in the place of C drive ( it was like that when I bought it as a second hand system) and C is the drive which is used for storing other data. I saw files by name "y6yol.exe" and an "autorun.inf". I think there was also another file by name "gbm6n.exe". I selected and deleted them. I ran NOD32 again & found the same trojan being detected and utomatically getting deleted.Then, when I tried to restart the system it was giving error message at the startup that "MWSBAR.dll" & "M3PLUGIN.DLL files are not able to load". For the time being I have disabled them both from the startup list. I did the same scan once again by disabling system restore on all drives. This time, however,there was no infection found. But I still can't see my hidden files. As my Adaware was causing problems I uninstalled it . But now I am unable to reinstall it. The installation process stops abruptly with an error message.
I have tried every possible thing within my limited knowledge to remove this mess. As I am not successful, I have come to seek ur help. Kindly go through this mail and do the needful. Also suggest me some precautionary measures which I should take in order to avoid such mishaps in the future. By the way, I have "autorun " option disabled on my laptop.

Pl find my DDS log below. When I tried to run "dds.scr", it opened a window showing it to run as an "autocad script" & not as 'screen saver'. And it produced a corrupt DDR.txt file. Only later when I run the "dds.pif", I could see both the "dds.txt" & the "attach.txt" files getting generated.

I have also attached the attach.txt file. Eagerly waiting for the feedback from ur side...thank you in advance...
