A couple of weeks ag0, got hit with something that disrupted my internet connection and was systematiccalt sabotaging everything on my computer. I found a folder and text file on my computer that, when I printed it out was a 37 page list of all the things it was doing. I deleted it, but it kept regenerating itself. My virus program didn't detect it. I ran some spyware scans, which seemed to help. But there's still problems. For example, my wireless card keeps getting disabled, and the onl way to get it working again is to delete and reinstall it, but that only works for a couple of days.
I ran Hijack This and have attached the log. Let me know if you spot anything.

Hi mm2003 and welcome to the Bleeping Computer forums. My name is Whisperer and I will be helping you with your problem. I am currently a Trainee in Malware removal and, as such, ALL of my fixes will be checked by malware experts. I am sorry for the delay in answering your problem but things are pretty hectic in the anti-malware world. If you still need help then please read on.

If you have not done so already, please do the initial cleanup steps in the following instructions and then post a new log: Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting a HijackThis Log

To assist me in any cleanup, I would like you to produce a list of installed programs.
  • To do this open your HijackThis
    • Click on Open the Misc Tools section or Config… button, depending on how you are set up.
    • If you used the Config... option then click the Misc Tools tab
    • Select Open Uninstall Manager , a list of your installed programs will be displayed.
    • Select the Save List… button and save the file to your desktop.
  • Please post in your reply.
    • A copy of this list
    • An up-to-date HijackThis log, please post direct to the thread
    • Please also advise the names of the mysterious folder and file and any further information
GT :thumbsup:
