I checked my startup list before I shut down my computer and found two wierd things that shouldn't be there. So I removed them and shut down my computer. The next day which i now, I opened my startup list and there were those two mysia.exe files. I searched my computer my for mysia.exe and found it in my system32 folder. I deleted it and think it's gone now but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

mysia.exe is added by the BACKDOOR-CEP TROJAN.

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions and read the User Manual.

Then perform this online Virus scan: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
