Yesterday AVG found a trojan and a backdoor virus, it quaranteed them, and today Ewido found backdoor.agobat.afk and sent it to the vault. I started scanning with all of my protection and noticed that I hadn't registered my a-squared, after registering it I ran a scan with it, and it indicated that my firefox was the source of my backdoor virus. I allowed the a-squared to remove the file, and reinstalled the firefox and am running the scan again, last scan it found the virus almost immediately, ten minutes into now and so far it hasn't detected it again.

I downloaded the new version of firefox last night, is it possible that the backdoor virus could have been downloaded with it?

Should I run and submit a hijack this log here?

The following is what I'm running, it's all activated and up to date.

Ewido (freeware version)
Spybot search and destroy

dc3, you already posted for help here.

It will be easier for others to assist you if you keep everything in one thread instead of a duplicate.
