Some how my computer came into contact with some trojans, but those were taken care of by avg. i have run mulitple scans and they are all coming up clean. however, i keep getting alerts from my zone alarm client about something named microsoft MediaLoad trying to access the internet. there are mulitple instances of this program in the same folder, which is the temp folder in the C:\\windows\temp file. i have never heard of this program, nor have i downloaded any type of this program. i looked it up on microsoft.com, and the only thing i could find on microsoft.com about anything named MediaLoad was a program that simulates a heavy lient load for testing servers that are running windows server. what is this program and is it safe to get rid of it?

Thanks ahead of time,

Purple Frog

on edit: a trojan horse dialer keeps trying to some up from the temp file mentioned above, the name of it from AVG is trojan horse dialer.BZB

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link below.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/ Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
