I have run procept and hijack this on my comp and found some files that need to go, but every time i try to delete them, they come back, even if i empty them from the recycle bin.

these are the file titles, if it helps:

can anyone help me erase them?

Hello mullanah

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans?

Have you investigated whether these files should be deleted? For instance, tlntsvr.exe is a legit process that belongs to the Microsoft Telnet application (a terminal emulation program TCP/IP networks) and sfc.exe is the Sytem File Checker, another legit Microsoft file. On the other hand, rpcsvc.exe is added by the W32/Cuebot-I worm and IRC backdoor.

Google can provide information on most files and what they are. For suspicious files you can always go to to jotti.org
Browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.

Then when your sure your dealing with a bad file you can usually delete it in "SAFE MODE".

However, even before doing that I would recommend doing this.

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06. Setup & Configure as shown here.
Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

Then perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan [ActiveScan Panda does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.]
