Hello all. I'm not sure if this is a problem or not. To start out, I am running windows Vista home premium, with Norton 360. So I clicked on a link, and it took me to a website that had a really long, seemingly random set of characters in the address bar. Right after this, my Norton resource monitor gave me a pop-up saying that the "Microsoft Search Indexer had high disk write activity(209 MB total for this process)". Thinking my computer had been infected with something, I ran a virus scan with Norton-all ok. I then ran CCleaner, to remove any cookies/flash cookies etc that may have been stored on my computer. During the process, I got a popup from Norton download manager saying that the file was too new and couldn't be verified as safe. The files listed were ZZZZZZZZ-ZZZ and $RPYWURJ.exe. I don't know what these files relate to, but I know that a .exe file is some sort of executable. Now the panic set in, and I started trying different products that I already had installed, to see if they picked up anything. I tried Superantispyware, and Malwarebytes. Outside of a few tracking cookies, they came out clean. I tried Norton Power eraser-OK, and All above scans in Safe mode. All were clean. I also got aother pop-up from Norton dowload manager saying the file $RGPY19Q.exe, is too new and couldn't be verified as safe. Thinking that something may be hiding in the system restore files, I turned that off, restarted my computer and rescanned with Norton and Malwarebytes-all showed clean. I have no idea what any of these files do, or if the .exe is running something that may compromise my security. I am very nervous about doing anything important on this computer, until I know if it's infected or not. Help.

Hello, I believe these are backed up files with ($) and the ZZZ files are overwrites by CCleaner or another similar tool.

So you don't think that I really have anything to worry about? It just seems weird to me that my Norton showed something was installed, but I hadn't installed anything. Usually when something automatically updates, the file that Norton shows in the download manager can be clicked on for more details, and it shows pretty clearly where it originated from. These files were unknown.

You're welcome!

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
