I got hit hard with a million trojans. I was stupid and put some unknown program and ran it. My virus software caught some and the spyware checker some others. I even went through some serious cleaning with hijackthis and such.

It seems to be very clean according to many virus checkers now.

Only problem, two files keep showing up in the root:


The bot log looks like it is doing some bad things and I know it came from some nasty crack software. Here is what is in the bot.log file:

I can't find anything on this file or seeming symptoms. I keep deleting them and they come right back. I don't know how to figure out what program is writing them.

Any help?
