I believe my computer may be infected.

When I ran Microsoft Security Essentials, it cleaned following items. Here is the screen shot.

Then I plugged in my external hard drive, the suspected source of infection, and MSE cleaned it out as well.

I thought I was in the clear, but I was wrong.

When I try to see the files that were on hard drive, I cannot. However, I can see them through Command Prompt with dir /ah command.

Moreover, when the laptop first logs on, I receive a USB Host Controller error. Here is the snap shot:

Then, convinced that my laptop is still infected, I've attempted to search your website for solution. I came across this thread.

As recommended, I downloaded RKill, Flash_Disinfector, MBAM, and GMER, turned off my internet connection, and ran these programs.

RKill gave me this 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 10/09/2011 at 19:03:40.
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium

Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:


Rkill completed on 10/09/2011 at 19:03:51.

I've attempted to run Flash_Disinfector, but nothing happened. Windows just gave me "this program did not install correctly" error. I proceeded with the steps and ran MBAM. MBAM gave me the following log on laptop:

, but it did not find anything on the external drive.

After that I ran GMER, but it reported that no problems were found and I did not print any logs.

After all this, I still cannot see the files and I still get the USB Host Controller error. I saw in MSE something about enabling something in order to see those files, but I wasn't sure exactly how to do it.

Please help.

My external drive is Toshiba, 1TB external drive model 593500-D.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic423539.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.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
