I'm having exactly the same problem word-for-word like you described. I'm on XP Pro with CA Anti-Virus. Like you, I ran MBAM and found nothing. This just started today so I changed my hard drive to a clone I made last weekend. It's also showing the exact same virus messages.

I'm wondering if this is a problem with CA Anti-Virus?

I should also mention that as soon as this virus was quarantined, files for my networking program (Network Magic) were deleted. Error messages popped up telling me Network Magic stopped working and needed to be reinstalled.

However, I keep getting more virus alerts like the OP stated. I turned off that computer and I'm now using an older computer that hasn't had CA Anti-Virus updated in a few days. I'm going to see if these problems start up after I update my anti-virus.
