Hello All,

For whatever reason, I now have 19 files in my startup list that do not seem to belong to any program I've installed. Google does not recognize these either (except for the last one I've listed). They are all .exe files and when I go to msconfig, it says they are installed in my c:\windows\system32 folder, however, when I go to that folder, they do not appear. Any ideas? Any ideas on how to delete them if they do not appear in the folder??? MANY THANKS!!!



//Mod edit: moved from Windows XP Home and Professional forum to the more appropriate.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer!

You may be infected by the FLUSH.F trojan as well as others. For help with removing your infection I would like to refer you to the Highjack This (HJT) forum here at BleepingComputer.com:

First: Read the Preparation Guide found HERE. It is very important that you follow ALL of the instructions found within. (There are many important steps in this guide that may clean your computer.)

Second: Post your system information along with a brief description of the problems you are having, and your HJT log in the HJT forum found HERE.

NOTE: Please, after you post your HJT log DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post there will be 1 reply. The team member glancing over the replies might think someone is already helping you out and will not respond. So, just make your post and let it sit there until a team member responds. The volunteers who work that forum are very busy, so please be patient and wait. It can sometimes take a few days for a response. If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a link to your HJT log HERE.

Third: If, after finishing your work with the folks at the HJT forum you have issues with XP related to the removal of the infection, then come back in here and let us help you get your computer back to normal.

You are in good hands! Good luck!

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
