first off i'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum area but i'm new to this site and i'm just looking for some answers. lately my computer has been sluggish and doing some strange things. (all the symptoms of a wonderful virus) so i ran security task manager to see if anything bad was running and i had 3 with ratings of 100. if you haven't run security task manager that's 100 out of 100 on a bad scale. 2 of the processes were mswinup.exe and sysvx.exe which i think are both bad and i'm working on getting rid of, but the one that confused me the most was called vhhxaaaa.exe. i tried googling it but there wasn't even one result. and the STM site had nothing on it either. any help would be appreciated.
also before you think i'm a complete dumbass yes i did run a virus scan but it freezes on me before it finishes.

If you can, run the online scan in the link below and let it quarantine whatever it finds.

Download the trial version in the link below and allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

After doing the above, post a Hijack This log by following the instructions in the link below.

Sysvx.exe is proof of Trojan Looksky. mswinup.exe you could have it checked here or here. the vhhxaaa.exe you could investigate and submitoverhere

However I suggest you follow the previous instructions. After postinga HJT log do not change install or remove anything to your computer.

mswinup.exe appears to be related to IRC-Worm.Win32.Drefir.c
sysvx.exe = Trojan.Looksky
vhhxaaaa.exe = no info so its more than likely an unidentified trojan.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, you can submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com for analysis as previously suggested by fozzie.

Since your dealing with several infections, I would advise posting a hijackthis log as soon as possible.

I have split your HJT log away from this thread and moved it into the HJT forum.

You can find it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/75052/vhhxaaaaexe-and-other-strange-processes/

Now that your log is posted there, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and complicate the malware removal process.

Please be patient and wait for a response from an HJT Team member. It may take a while to get a response because team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. While waiting, please DO NOT make another reply to your log until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
