I'm having issues I haven't been able to take care of with the usual programs. I've tried Combofix, Malware Bytes, TDSS Killer, EZ_sirefix, and Rkill but had no success.
What I'm seeing is a message about a file in my recycle bin being corrupted when I start up or try to delete something, but it's empty. I've still got a the free version of Hitman and it scans when I start up. It's been finding two trojans, one is in my users file and is called “dedcefeadcdfaad.exe”, which troubles me because it looks like an executable program; and the other is simply called “n”, and the location given is my recycle bin. I decided earlier today I'd post here since several attempts with the programs I mentioned have failed to remove these things. I'm glad I did because today I've got a second copy of “n”, as well as two copies of “desktop.ini” in separate locations (but both in windows/assembly/), with “80000064.@” and 80000000.@” also apparently in my recycle bin.
I've got some random redirects, IE randomly reloading with a message about an unexpected failure reopening the tab, a couple times I've seen some tab at the bottom of my screen open and immediately close, and some slowing down off and on.
Any ideas of fixes? Thanks.
ETA: I forgot to mention that a few weeks back I had files appear mysteriously in "my documents". Three of them. The two names I remember were "Skype" and "VLCplayer", which I recognize but didn't download and these didn't appear to be able to be opend by any programs I have. Another set of surprises was that months ago I had a notepad file with "hs_err" at the beginning the file name appear on my desktop, and I remember seeing Symantec's name in it. I deleted it and I think have since reformatted, but when I was selecting a pic to search for on Google Image I saw a lot of these files in the browse prompt, though I don't see them when I go directly to that location. A bunch of files appeared in "my documents" with the same icon as the "Skype" and whatever else not long ago.
This probably all leads to needing a new PC doesn't it?
