Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks in advance since you've solved a couple problems for me before.

Today on startup, I noticed a weird file that TheCleaner said made some changes to my startup files. The file name was just numbers, it was 49674074977093.exe. I manually deleted the file, and found no traces of it using Ewido, Spy Sweeper, or Mcafee. Spy Sweeper, did however, find two Trojans, adeog and downloader.ruin, which it quarantined and deleted.

Now, using Startup Inspector, I've noticed two files that were previously not there, C://WINDOWS\System32\dmcsg.exe, and C://WINDOWS/System32/dmwiu.exe.

Also, my computer is running slower than hell. Using Task Manager, many of the running files are taking up a lot of memory. I ran HiJack This, but nothing out of the ordinary came up.

Any clues as to what this could be? Is it just spyware? Thanks for any help....

EDIT: Now SpySweeper has found Trojan.downloader.ruin again. It keeps re-establishing itself....HELP!

Are you trained in the use and investigation of the entries listed in the log this program generates? Most of the log entries are required to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage to your system. HijackThis relies on experts to interpret the log entries and determine what needs to be fixed. You should NOT fix anything yourself without consulting a expert as to what to fix.

With that said it sounds like you have several malware issues going on. What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have your tried doing a scan in "SAFE MODE"?

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.

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users
If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.

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