For about a week now I've been trying to stop this virus. The infection came without even downloading anything. I've tried trojan scanners, malware, spyware doctor and norton antivirus and still it's not completely fixed. It may be pacified but my computer is always busy.. when idle even my hour glass is always blinking next to my cursor. Multiple instances of svchost.exe run under system, local and network services. One of the processes under system is always consuming about 4-6% of my cpu. When I end that process the hour glass stops blinking but my computer behaves weird. My start menu and windows will switch back and forth from classic to regular style and my sound is shut off and my computer tells me no audio mixer is installed. It used to give me lots of pop ups before I did all the scanners. Now it seems like it's harmless but the blinking hour glass convinces me that it's monitoring me. I'm afraid to check my bank account or pay bills online. Here's by Hijackthis log. Thanks in advance! --------I also forgot to mention that occasionally ill occasionally notice rundll32 popping up in my processes again and again and again for five or ten minutes at a time. Always when I boot up. Thanks again!

Anybody have anything that could help me at all?
This virus is giving me a headache.
Whenever I close the infected SVChost.exe process it crashes my audio and probably does a number of other things.
Whenever I try and run a virus scan I notice my computer freezes and if I check the processes about 20+ rundll's stop popping up then it finds absolutely nothing.

Yeah, thanks. I figured it out though. It was an infected image file that was uploaded to imagefap. I thought it came through an activex control or something but when one of my hard drives crashed it has no longer been a problem.
