I got hit with an intrusion a few days ago. I found a lot of information regarding the problem (AntiVirus Suite 2010 scam) online and thought I had totally removed the threat. However, every time since I completed the fix that I've run both a Malwarebytes and/or Avast scan they both pick up infected files in the same folder on my computer. I've tried to let those programs quarantine/remove the infected files but they are not having success. I've tried to manually delete the infected file in windows as well as safe mode and from DOS startup without success. An error keeps popping up saying that there are not enough "resources" to access the file). My computer seems to be running with out a hitch, but I am still concerned about a potential security threat. Should I be concerned about these files, and if so any ideas on how to fix the computer without reinstalling Windows and starting over? Below is a cut and paste of the log from a recent Malwarebytes scan (one thing to note is that MB shows only three threats in that file; Avast shows 1,909 threats in the same location). Any thoughts or help?

Looks like a newer variant and we'll need a deeper look. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic357051.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
