I have been having multiple virus issues and I feel like I'm beating my head against a wall.
I have been reliant on Symantic Anti-virus & firewall, Corporate version, but now it seems Symantic has not been catching them all.

I have found that when typing in MS Word letters or numbers will just "appear". I delete those figuring that it's just a glitch (having dealt with older systems most of my life I'm used to software/programs having similar glitches).

Well, over the past couple months I have been running AV several times a day. I now use (along with the Symantic) RKill (which now AdAware won't allow to run and IDs it as a virus), MalwareByte Anti-Malware, and AdAware.

I usually deleted everything in quarentine, but what I have record of so far is malware.trace, Trajan.FakeAlert(fs) (I think this is the AdAware trying to get rid of RKill), Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT, Win32.TrojanPWS.LdPinch, Fraud.Sysguard, and Virtumonde.dll.

I have been browsing through this site and downloaded a number of other AV programs, but havn't used them yet.

And just a second ago MalwareBytes incepted and prevented contact from my computer to a malicious website at

I think I'm gonna have to step back and ask for help. This stuff is over my head.

ETA: Sorry about not enough info. Operating system is Windows XP, SP3.
I do not have screen shots of behavior. And now J drive is inoperable.
