I recently had an infection that I removed with Super Anti Spyware. Unfortunately my computer still seems not quite right. Both MBAM and SAS are coming back clean and I'm not quite sure what to do. I have tried to run RKILL before running MBAM and SAS but it doesn't run correctly. After I double click on RKILL.com I get a windows message that says that iexplore.exe experienced a problem and needs to close. Then RKILL.com opens and then I get a message that says pev.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Then RKILL says several times that it cannot access the file because it is in use by another process. If I run RKILL.exe all of the same behavior happens but before it does I get a message that says the installation failed.

System Information:

XP Media Center Edition SP3
Pentium D 2.8 GHz

Thanks for your time.

Can you post the log from Super anti-spyware showing the infection?

Unfortunately I cannot find the log for that infection removal. I looked and couldn't see that it had been saved anywhere.

Noticed that on this startup the computer initiated several iexplore.exe processes in the task manager even though I wasn't using internet explorer.
