Hi PeteKelso and welcome to BC.

Please take note of the following:

1. Please do not run any other tools unless instructed.
2. Please don't install or uninstall anything unless asked.
3. The cleaning process is not instant. Please continue to review my answers until I tell you that your computer is clean.
4. If there's anything that you don't understand, please ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.
5. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

P2P Warning
Please note that as long as you're using any form of Peer-to-Peer networking ( Frostwire, Bearshare, Bit Torrent etc.) and downloading files from non-documented sources, you can expect infestations of malware to occur.
P2P programmes form a direct conduit onto your computer, their security measures are easily circumvented, and Malware writers are increasingly exploiting them to spread their wares onto your computer. Further to that, if your P2P programme is not configured correctly you may be sharing more files than you realise. There have been cases where people's Passwords, Address Books and other personal, private, and financial details have been exposed to the file sharing network by a badly configured programme.

Many of the programmes come bundled with other unwanted programmes, but even the ones free of any bundled software are not safe to use.
When you use them you are downloading software from an unknown source directly onto your computer, bypassing your Firewall and Anti-Virus software. Hardly surprising then that many of these Downloads are being targeted to carry infections.

You may decide to continue P2P sharing, but keep in mind that this practice may be the source of future malware infestation.
If we clean your computer of infection, and you return to us a short time later with an infection contracted by the use of P2P programmes, we may refuse to help you.

If do you do decide (unwisely) to keep these programs, please refrain from using them until we have finished cleaning your system.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BitTorrent] "C:\Documents and Settings\Peter\Application Data\BitTorrent\BitTorrent.exe" /MINIMIZED

This running at startup is just asking for trouble.

We no longer use HijackThis as it's so out of date and doesn't give us much to go on.
You may as well uninstall it.

Step 1

Download RogueKiller and save it to your desktop.
  • Close all the running processes
  • Double click RogueKiller icon to run the program
    Vista/Win7 users should right click the icon and select Run as Administrator.
  • Wait for the Prescan to finish.
  • Now click the Scan button.
  • Please copy and paste the report in your next reply.
A copy of the RKreport.txt can be found on your desktop.

If RogueKiller is blocked, do not hesitate to try running it again.
If it still fails to run, right click on the downloaded icon and select 'Rename'.....rename it to winlogon and try again.
