Hey, I've had a virus for a little while and I'm pretty sure I've narrowed it down to a program called "wmpscfgs.exe." No matter how many times I delete it and with what program, it keeps coming back and in the same place. I've searched for that file in the Windows Search and found it in three places; in C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer, C:\Windows\Temp, and in C:\Windows\Prefetch. I scanned all three with MBAM and found that only the first one appears to be a virus (Don't know if it could be wrong). So I'm pretty sure it is the one in the Internet Explorer folder, but I don't know what to do or how to get rid of it.

I have Windows XP, I've used MBAM many times to try to get rid of it, and another thing I noticed is that my regedit.exe was disabled, but it randomly isn't anymore.

And I have been getting some popups recently about how my computer is infected and how I should download some random program.... It even runs fake scans, so I ran MBAM and it seems to have stopped it, but I'm not too sure.'

Edit: Sometimes when I do run MBAM, when I try to delete the viruses that were found, it randomly closes out of MBAM.

Edit Again: I found another post that seems to be exactly how mine is, except I am running xp. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/305561/user-protection-jsmui-wmpscfgsexe-trojan-infection/ I got rid of User Protection, but I still have the wmpscfgs.exe and js.mui in my Internet Explorer folder (even though I never use IE). The poster apparently figured it out, but didn't elaborate at all =/

Well it's been running fine, but the wmpscfg.exe is still there. And I have been getting this windows message recently that says, "Program Cannot Start or Run" as the title then the text is "The program or feature "\??\C:\WINDOWS\system32\verclsid.exe" cannot run or start due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available." The weird thing is that it just randomly pops up, so I have no idea!

And wow that took a long time to type... I had to type the whole error message. But here is the log:

Ok looks like theses are all related and we keep getting them back. The wmpscfgs.exe virus is difficult to remove.
We need a DDs Log and then probably a custom script to kill it.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 and not here,thanks.
Give it a Title. wmpscfgs.exe virus

If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.
