Hi all experts,
Yesterday I saw that my folder with CakeWalk projects is empty. I saw also, that boot.ini and bootfon.bin is deleted.
At first, I thought that it is a harddrive problem, but only in one partition files were disappearing. If I restored my copy of boot.ini and bootfont.bin,
after boot-up of my system, they were deleted again.
I spent more time to watch my internet connections, and whole my bandwidth was used.

I scanned my PC with Kaspersky Internet Security, McAfee 2009, and Avast (latest databases)
But only Avast moved few system files like kernel32.dll into virus vault after boot-up scan.

I scanned my PC also by Malwarebytes and Combofix, but no results, every program reports that my pc has no viruses etc.

What should I do?
I'm using Windows XP SP3 Proffessional
If needed, I can post Combofix / HijackThis logs.

Thanks for any help, will be appreciated.
Ps: Sorry for my bad english.
