I am running XP sp3, using McAfee as anitvirus, Windows Firewall, and Superantispyware, Malwarebytes and PCTOOLS Spyware Doctor as scanners to help remove malware.
A week ago, my C drive started filling up without reason. I noticed that each time I booted up, a user - HelpAssistant - or some variation of that - was created with full admin rights, and a directory created and filled with some other users files. I am able to delete the user and then tediously remove the files, but they return with every boot of the system,
I have run Superantispyware and removed a number of trojans, and Malwarebytes. The latest Malware bytes run has detected a MBR.Rootkit which it supposedly removed upon reboot. However, the HelpAssistant problem continues.
I would be ver thankful for any assistance that can be provided.
