i posted this, by mistake, in the introduciton shortly after i joined

i noticed there was permission for something named '123.exe' to go through the firewall so i blocked it. upon inspection of my processes in task manager i noticed csrss.exe and now winlogon.exe didnt have my user name on them. they were the only two that didnt have my user name on the list. but i got program named Ultimate Process Detail & Killer when i opened the program and looked at more details of the process i noticed the creation,cs, and os name were all win32. so, does that mean the processes are in fact from my computer??? as for '123.exe' i have the logs and they will be posted at the end of this message.i will be using the instructions which fireman4it posted. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic383273.html Thanks for the help and your patience working with a 'noob' ;)peace

i already ran the DDS and got the logs but they wont save nor can i find out where i would attach a file to any of these posts, thanks for your help.

When you click the Posted Image button (found at the top and bottom of the page) in your new topic which should be created in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, you will see an Attach This File button on the left lower side. Browse to the location of your log, click on it and then click that button.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic414877.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.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

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