I had viewed the thread, "Exe file, bad image pop ups" where mflynn had really been a lifesaver. I am following mflynn's advice after I had somehow gotten the infamous Anti-virus2009 virus (and a host of other trojans, it appears. I do tech support and have to do alot of researching...viruses of all things...but now I have it. I followed the steps outlined by mflynn to start with, including running ccleaner and malwarebyte's program (after scanning by our TrendMicro Client/Server Security Agent). Malwarebyte stopped the annoying redirection, antivirus 2009 popups but now I also have the bad image files messages just as described above, I had backed up the registry and done a system restore (supposedly) but after rebooting still have ~30-40 bad image files. I hope that Mike can help me here, as well! I will attach the log files and send them when I hear from ...whomever! Thanks in advance!
