    1. Contact your bank IMMEDIATELY.
    2. CHANGE ALL PASSWORDS to your Accounts(s)
    3. ensure your system has adequate virus and spyware protection
    4. DO NOT USE instant messaging or P2P software on your computer. These are frequent avenues of attack.

    Delete this file:
    C:\WINDOWS\DA15D5355E1D4076B5208571346D6238.TMP

    Check these two folders, and if you do not know what they are or did not create them, delete them.
    C:\Program Files\tex
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\MumboJumbo

    Apart from that your logs are fine, just make sure you follow these instructions below.

    1. Please download and run CCleaner via step 9 of the instructions HERE.

    2. Delete all files in AVG Antispyware Quarantine folder. (located in C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Quarantine)

    3. Turn off system restore (XP/ME only). Learn how to do that HERE.
      This will remove all the remaining nasties from your old restore points.

    4. After that turn system restore back on.
      This would have created a new safe and clean restore point for your system.

    5. Often times, an infection can occur again not due to the incompetence of programs, but because of user habits.
      May I recommend you to read this article.
      This can help to prevent future infections.

    Should you have any further problems, please post in this thread.
