I ended the ms.exe process, deleted all three values of it from my registry and have had no problems so it was likely a trojan. I also deleted an explorer.exe value because it looked very suspicious and kept trying to access the net. Without it my computer works fine. It had some odd value like explorer.exe-02121B1A.pf and contained a very small amount of information (11 KB). It's listed as being in my prefetch folder and is actually still showing up in file and folder searches. Should I try deleting it again? Also, in searching for a BAT DEBSKI virus that trend micro housecall picked up as being in the folder C:Windows/System32/O.BAT I couldn't locate it in that folder. Even when exposing hidden files all I found were two files that could have been it: both were listed as "O" files, one being a regular file and the other an MS-DOS batch file. is either of these worthy of possible deletion? Thank you.
