Hello... some suspicious goings-on with my computer - would really appreciate some help!

Last week a routine SpybotS&D scan detected the trojan Bifrose.LA on my computer, with an AdAware scan detecting Win32.TrojanDownloader.Agent.am afterwards. I posted in the HJT log forum and MFDnSC helped me out. After taking his advice I am no longer getting positive detections from any of my anti-malware scanners, but my computer is still being a little worrisome. MFDnSC told me to post in this forum to get help.

Here's the original HJT thread:

As you can see from that last post, my AVG email scanner is still occasionally popping up a window that says it's connecting to "10001265696.0000029181.acesso.oni.pt:110". I have *no* idea what that is, and the behavior just started last week. I switched my AVG email scanner to log "Maximum" info, and now when the acesso.oni.pt message appears I'm getting this in the log:

2.1.2007 17:41:09.937 [98] AutoPOP3(10110): Connection from process 3436

2.1.2007 17:41:54.093 [ea0] AutoPOP3(10110): Client disconnected

Of course, my concern is that my computer is still compromised by some sort of backdoor type thing. Anyone seen this before? Anything in particular I should look into?

Thanks in advance for any help...

Hi Aster77
Looking at both your HJT post and this one, the attempted mail destination (portugal) hasn't changed.
However, the processes have. You'll need to find out which application is using that process.
Hit ctrl+alt+del and then click the processes tab. Click View>Select Columns. Put a check mark in "PID" then click ok. Post back what is using (in this case) process 3436 if you don't already know what it is.
Shady P2P software (i.e emule,etc) would be my first suspicion but I have no idea what is installed on your system beyond what is listed in your original HJT log.
