This topic has actually already been addressed before, but I think the repair techniques are different for different computers pending the infection time that has passed or something. The problem is "b.exe", I have only known of its existence for about 48 hours now, so far the only effects are randomly opening the internet and causing pop-ups of "your computer is infected click to clean" of which you can only escape by ending the browser process. Trying to close the window, tab or refusing the scan/cleaning just reopens the dialog box to scan or clean. It also appears to be opening random internet media, however its in the background and cannot be closed without ending process "b.exe", randomly opening media from the porn audio to internet radio.

I'm pretty computer savvy, I usually fix these problems with a little investigation and either downloading some software to fix it or even registry editing, but this one has me stumped where to start, all of the solutions I've found seem to be different from the last so I'd really appreciate some help. Its only been 48 hours so I don't think too much damage could have been caused thus far. What bothers me is in researching b.exe I've seen it be labeled a variety of things including a worm and trojan. So I know I have it, I just don't know what "it" is, heh.

Look forward to the reply

Some new varients have been released that we are struggling with
The tools we are using in this particular forum are having a hard time
It is best that you submit a DDS / HJT log

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

The HJT team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your post
Please be patient and good luck
