Hello Folks,

I am having an issue I have seen here. McAfee keeps coming up with a virus scan alert for:
svchost.exe in a windows temp folder, C:\WINDOWS\Temp\vkyj.tmp, or some other last 4 letter combo about
every 5 minutes. It says detected as Generic.dx!srl Trojan.
My computer seems to run well otherwise. I did notice last week, my IE would be redirected often though.
From reading posts, I have downloaded GMER.exe. I have created a log file from the scan and saved it as a .txt file on my desktop.

Can someone help guide me through a fix??

Please post your GMER log.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
