i followed this guide on how to remove this type of file

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/How...are-tut101.html

under the: How to remove these infections

but i did not have much time to be on the computer as this was in the morning lol :thumbsup: anyway i got down to the remove them but i didnt know exactly where it is or what it is called

the files seem to be on C:\

but like i said i was not able to sit and scan through the list so i thought i best leave it and ask for adivce

Running your resident Anti-virus in "Safe Mode" may prevent the viruses from hiding in something being used (and therefore "protected" by Windows).
If this doesn't work, let us know.

Hi Matt169,

I don't think you are ok yet though, because the infection(s) you are dealing with never comes alone. Since those are new variants again, I am not sure your antivirus will even flag/delete it.

That's why i recommend you post a hijackthislog in the right forumpart here.
