Hello,

This is a symptom of the Troj/Haxdoor-CA Trojan. Here is a link to some information about it:

BC Database - Troj/Haxdoor-CA

Here is also a detailed description from Sophos:
Sophos Description

This could have compromised your system and led to more infections so I suggest posting a HijackThis log in the HJT Logs and Analysis Forum. Here is a link to that Forum:

HJT Forum

Please follow the preparation directions and try not to alter your system until you receive help from one of our HJT Team Members. The preparation directions are found at the following link:

Prep Guide for Posting HJT Logs

Please note: Do not try to fix any problems with HJT yourself. This is an advanced tool and requires expert analysis.

Please be patient until somone assists you, it may take a couple of days. But, it's FREE :thumbsup:

Make sure you follow the directions I provided above. By posting a log, we can provide expert assistance and ensure you are properly protected and have a clean machine.

From the problems you are describing, I don't think we'd be successful in removing any infections without doing an analysis of your HJT log. Please follow the prep guide, as it will alleviate many of the problems you are experiencing. Please be patient until one of the team members can assist you.

Well I reformated again and now useing a used 120 gig hard drive that i had around. As of right now i have had no problems. Thanks for the help so far... I'm just going to pitch the old hard drive out, not worth fixing. I think that last reformat would have been the 6th time, and its only a 40 gig.

Good luck with your 120 gig hard drive.
