about a week ago I found some odd files in my shared folder and stupidly I ran them. I infected my self with dl.exe and tenga.a and probly more.
windows failed to boot normaly so I ran windows in safe mode with networking and ran kaspersky virus removal tool several times and thought i had fixed the system. Even though i still couldnt get msconfig to work.

So I turned off my computer and went away on holiday. when I retured I found that my hotmail account had been used to send dubiuos links to all in my contacts list with no trace in my sent messages.

so I upped my game and installed kaspersky pure and changed my passwords, kaspersky didnt find much. So then I ran spybot and malwarebytes they both found a trojan each. Now this Worried me as my computer seemed alittle sluginsh in the typing department and internet explorer was freezeing on ocassion. So i ran several online scanners they all found nothing.

I tried combofix in safe mode after it found infected files and system files

c:\documents and settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Bluetooth.lnk <-kaspersky told this was tryn to access password files :0
c:\documents and settings\User\Application Data\inst.exe

msconfig still doesnt work and i still suspect keyloggers,trojans or worse on my system.

its time to swallow my pride and ask for help :thumbsup:

edit: i have reinstalled superantispyware and am currently running a full scan already it has found 7 copies of trojan.agent/gen

edit: installed and running a-squared its has found quite few when the others no longer find any
and the list goes on :flowers:
