I just got infected a few minutes ago with a very powerful spyware that targets both HijackThis and ComboFix.

When i first noticed i was infected, i tried running the copies of HiJackThis and ComboFix that were installed on my computer, but they wouldn't run, even after i tried multiple times.
The Spyware program actually terminated the HT and CF processes almost instantly.
The spyware program actually rendered my HijackThis files unuseable by making them into shortcuts and by changing the file permissions so i wasn't able to delete the file.
Luckily i have another computer, and i was able to copy a fresh copy of ComboFix into the computer after i rebooted it in safe mode, and then i renamed combofix.exe "CF.exe" and was able to get it running after i got combofix running concurrently multiple times.

Combofix was able to detect and cleanup the spyware, consisting of 5 dll files, one dat, one db and one sys file, all residing in the system32 folder. The cleanup took three reboots.
I also had to reset the file permissions on the trashed HijackThis files so i could delete them and recopy them.

I renamed the program files\HijackThis folder to HT and renamed both HijackThis and ComboFix executables to HT.exe and CB.exe.

I have all the randomly-named spyware files quarantined. Please let me know if you would like a copy.
