OK, I see I'm far from the first person with this nasty little bug. It's the first one I've ever been really hit with in years, so I'm particularly annoyed at it!

So, on with the normal info: I was running AVG free (updated automatically) when it suddenly started sprouting alerts. For some reason I thought it was AVG with some false positives, as it was getting the hits for the VBS-ExeDropper virus, even on files that I was pretty sure wouldn't have an issue, including some that I'd written myself (I'm a developer). So I unisntalled AVG, and installed Avast, which is now gradually filling the chest.

I've attached the DDS and GMER logs.

Also, following some advice here, I ran RKUnHooker, with the result attached.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Rundll32 was being used to run something called gedpct.dll. I couldn't find any reference on this, and it's in the chest anyway. Not sure if that's important or not.

Thanks shelf-life.

I actually gave up the attempt to fix it, and I rebuilt windows instead. My machine is a hell of a lot faster than it used to me, so there was a positive side!

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
