Despite the fact that I have an up to date Microsoft security system operating on my computer due to stupidity (on my part) I allowed a virus onto the system. I applied for a job that needed an application form filling out, downloaded the form (I thought) to find that I had allowed some nasty's on to my system. I ran MSE which discovered two types of Trojan Obfiscator ACV which were quarantined and then deleted. I checked the control panel and found three programmes that needed to be deleted as I didn't allow their access and they were added on the same day as my problems occurred. I breathed a sigh of relief and went back to work.

I updated all my software to latest levels including Explorer.

However my computer which was rock steady before this started to act strangely. I kept getting pop ups to update my Explorer and when I did I was taken to Bing to set up a home page.

I scanned again and MSE showed no problems. I ran the Microsoft security scanner which showed no problems.

Yet still I got these popups.

I added Avast antivirus and they ran a scan and found nothing.

Yet I still get these popups which lead me to change my home page to Bing.

I then went into task manager and checked processes and found something quite strange.

I have four files that show no user name or description. They are JME.load.exe, crss.exe, winlogon.exe (all of which I thought should be in the system 32 file) and wisptis.exe - which is in two places. I have a wispis. exe file in further up the processes list which has my user name and under the description has the Microsoft detail. They even take up different amounts of memory (3.8 for the one with information and 3.3 for the other one.)

So, I know that these exe files shouldn't be tampered with but should they be found twice on a system and shouldn't all files properly loaded have a user name and description?

If these are the Trojans, shouldn't MSE, MSS or Avast spotted them?

Am I going out of my mind???
