Virus or unwanted program 'TR/2ndThought.AA.2 [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\WINDOWS\Temp\CB228.tmp.

This happens a couple times a day - usually there are three subsequent detections and then nothing for a couple hours.I use this box essentially as a media server and it has some DVR recording hardware/software installed as well (BeyondTV, DaemonTools, Slysoft AnyDVD etc).

What worries me most is that the file generated always has a different hex-based name and on occasion has been a .exe (in C:\WINDOWS\Temp\CB228.exe for example)...

I have run hijackthis and have captured the following logfile:

Hello are you are running Comodo Firewall and antivirus and Avira antivirus. I am suspecting a conflict and False Positives. I suggest you uninstall the Comodo A/v portion,retaining the firewall.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I do have Comodo installed - I will remove the A/V and see if this remedies the issue.
