I belive its related to a virtumonde spyware file. Its called baktask.exe in my Windows prefetch folder. It takes a good 30K out of my memory. I have deleted it several times, only to come right back also end process dodes not work either. I attempted using Ad Aware SE in regular and safe mode to remove this disease. It still is there. I did notice that after i deleted the baktas.exe file a hostx.exe file shows up.

If any one could help me remove this it would be greately apreciated.
Preferably step by step.

HELP Please!!!!!!

Thanks

Frizzle86, one more step please :thumbsup:

Your log shows that you are seriously behind on windows updates. It is essential that you update your windows before we continue to help you as the infections could reoccur. Go to http://www.windowsupdate.com and if it asks to install software, let it. Then click on the Scan link and let it do its thing. When its done you will see on your left a section called critical updates. Click on that section and install everything that you can. When it prompts you to reboot, do so. Then repeat this process again until there are no more critical updates listed. Then post a new log (click the Add reply button).

Frizzle86, you must install at least Windows XP Service Pack 1 and ALL critical updates. Do you have a problem with the update process ?

Also it is important to put HijackThis in his own folder. Please read this: Putting HijackThis Into It's Own folder, Some How-To's and move HijackThis in his own folder please.
