Microsoft Security Essentials detects a trojan known as Trojan:DOS/Aureon.E but is unable to remove it. I've also tried using TDSSKiller and Windows Defender Offline to remove it with no luck. I'm running Windows 7 and I recently reformatted my computer. Any assistance in removing this trojan would be greatly appreciated. Should I assume my passwords have been compromised?

One of your infections is known as a Backdoor Trojan. These threats have backdoor functionality which allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information, and download and execute files.
I highly suggest you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately, and if possible use a clean computer and a flash drive to transfer the programs I request for you to run. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable. It would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to notify them of your situation.
Due to the nature of this trojan, your computer is very likely to be compromised. There is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

If you wish to get help cleaning your computer then follow these steps:
Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Since there is now a open topic in the logs forum, I have locked this one
