I just did a clean install of windows 8 because my laptop had all these random files in c: and d:. And they're here again, maybe because I plugged in my pen drive and that must be infected. Windows defender keeps identifying the files but can't seem to delete the root cause.
I tried deleting the autorun.inf and all other files using 7zip in safe mode.. They still keep coming back. There are also random.exe files in my temp folder.. I tried using ccleaner to delete those too. But they keep coming back..
What do I do ?
There's also this desktop.ini file in so many folders and recycle bin, just keeps reappearing
I'm posting the Hijackthis log, Hijackthis also said, "for some reason your Hosts could not be edited"
