I thought I'd removed it, I removed the keys from the registry, found and manually deleted the file itself (thought they were clever, naming it "update.exe", didn't fool me for a second considering the folder it was in). But now, I keep getting a generic host process error with svchost and ntdll.

I seen what you told someone else who had a similar problem to do, so I went ahead and generated the proper files needed. I made a couple of slight changes to them for privacy reasons, but nothing that'll change what's there or not regarding any possible infection I may have.

I'm stumped, please help? I'm sure you can do it. Attached are the following:
three text files, the logs/reports generated by OTL and RKUnhooker, and one PNG file, a cropped screenshot of the error itself.

actually, I might need to edit this post, or reply to it, since I can't find the attach file option.

edit: there is no attach file option as far as I can tell. Screw it, here's a link to a ZIP that contains the files:

edit 2: it's generated using winRAR, but I told it to make a ZIP (so you can use winzip, or just plain windows explorer if you have XP and up). No password.

edit 3: 64 freaking views! zero replies! *sigh*

ADMIN EDIT: Totally unnecessary poll removed.

That's because the Am I Infected forum does not allow attachments. Further, we do not analyze such logs in this forum.

View count includes everyone that looks at a topic: folks looking for a solution, guests, even yourself. That said, you're going to have to exercise patience. There are a LOT of people looking for assistance.

That said,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them. Since you have run OTL, please include that log in the new topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
