Hi all

I have had this problem for a while now and I thought I had erradicated it, but alas, no.
iexplore.exe opens by itself and seems to be surreptitiously downloading a zip/rar file named svchost, then extracts itself.
I think I've now got a handle on the file names and I've renamed iexplore.exe to iexplorer.exe to try and stop it from happening before I solve the problem. Please help !!!

I use avg free antivirus, Spybot, webroot spy sweeper and zone alarm firewall.

Below is my hijack log

Thanks

I assume Spybot and your antivirus are up to date an you ran full scans with both, right?

Yes.

Anyone?? Please??

AVG has now noticed two more viruses.
E:\WINDOWS\system32\explore.exe and E:\WINDOWS\system32\win1ogon.exe


Getting serious...

Please help.

In this case, I'd recommend a full scan. If that doesn't work, prepare to format your drive.
Since you don't know the extent to which the virus(es) have permeated your drive or from what date for that matter I wouldn't recommend using any of the backup disks that you've made.
