Hi,
My computer was infected with MS Removal Tool and thanks to the instruction from your Web site, I was able to remove it. At the time of infection, I also noticed that 2 new files were added to my desktop. They are 0.30605367786813775.exe and 0 file. I've run both Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and AVG full scan on my computer but they didn't mark them as virus/trojan/malware. Please let me know what these files are and how to safely remove them.
Thanks,
Tony

Based on the file names, there is no way to determine exactly what they are without further information. Anytime you come across a suspicious file or you want a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze file now.

BTW, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has a built-in FileAssassin feature for removing stubborn malware or other malicious files that it did not detect.
  • Go to the "More Tools" tab and click on the "Run Tool" button
  • Browse to the location of the file(s) to remove using the drop down box next to "Look in:" at the top.
  • When you find the file, click on it to highlight, then select Open.
  • You will be prompted with a message warning: This file will be permanently deleted. Are you sure you want to continue?. Click Yes.
  • If removal did not require a reboot, you will receive a message indicating the file was deleted successfully.
  • Click Ok and exit MBAM.
  • If prompted to reboot, then do so immediately.
-- If the file returns, then you probably have other malware on your system which is protecting or regenerating it.

Caution: Be careful what you delete. FileAssassin is a powerful program, designed to remove highly persistent files. Using it incorrectly could lead to serious problems with your operating system if removing a critical file.
