Dear all,

I have a defragmenter virus running on my computer (windows XP) that blocked acess to all drives, folders and programs.

I followed this guide: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-system-defragmenter

But only managed to copy rkill to desktop after running windows on safe mode. After that, on normal mode, I tried all rkills but only the one named explorer.exe worked. It cancelled the virus and I had acess to folders and programs.

Since I had malware already installed I updated it and ran it. It found 4 infected files that I ordered to be cleaned at the end.
When I restarted the computer the defragmenter virus showed up again.

So, since I am all out of ideas I attach the rkill log:

This log file is located at C:\rkill.log.
Please post this only if requested to by the person helping you.
Otherwise you can close this log when you wish.

Rkill was run on 11-01-2011 at 17:33:40.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP

Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\RGtEQWtIaJSbR.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\2jJndlcT.exe
C:\Programas\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\aef\Ambiente de trabalho\eXplorer.exe

Rkill completed on 11-01-2011 at 17:33:48.

Thank you very much in advance, for all the help you may give me.
Best Regards.

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.

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.
