Thanks for taking your time to help me.
I posted in August last year in this thread and thought my problem was solved. (btw, the help that I received here was great). However, as a sort of spur of the moment kind of thing, I decided to search and see if I still had the problem, and I did.

The file which I have been using to tell if I have this malware is jesterss.dll. There is a program called Everything, which is a lightning fast search freeware program, which can be found here. I've been using this to detect all traces of this malware, and by using this program, I can quickly and efficiently tell where all parts of it are hiding. I'm here because I deleted all traces of this terrible malware with FileASSASSIN, except for one pesky folder which won't delete.
When I use FileASSASSIN, I can delete the one file in the folder (folder called "spool" located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool); file called srgb color space profile.icm, located in the spool folder. I unlock the modules in this file with FileASSASSIN, then delete it, and then try to delete the folder. Whenever I try to delete the folder, it tells me "Access denied, file is in use by another person or program" and a new srgb color space profile.icm is created. I was wondering how I could delete this pesky file, and finally be done with this malware once and for all.
There is also a folder called "dllcache" located in C:\WINDOWS\system32 which isn't even visible to me, even when I show hidden files. It's only visible on "Everything."

I kept notice of the malware and its locations, and wrote them down. Here's all the malware I could find, and deleted:

filterpipelineprintproc.dll (Which is found in...)

C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386

printfilterpipelinesvc.exe (Which is found in...)


srgb color space profile.icm (Which is found in...)


srgb.icm (Which is found in...)


sRGB.pf (Which is found in...)
C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2\lib\cmm

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

EDIT: During this time I use Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows XP. Thanks!

EDIT: Moved from XP to Am I Infected...please read/follow all admin instructions in the AII forum from this point on ~ Hamluis.
