hey all, i don't know what i have but i'll give you some symptoms. error cleaner, privacy protector and spyware & malware remover(bogus) are on my desktop, popups with bogus threat alerts, explorer.exe has 99% cpu usage in task manager, ie redirect is a strange website, norton internet security detects "tmp12345.exe" trying to connect to server at x.x.x.x, it also stops multiple attempts to change your homepage. I ran all the prelim scans, i think smit fraud deleted a few things, like zlob. downloader.rid, win32.trojan.killproc. there are somethings i don't recognize, mdXiXiob.exe, syntpenh.exe, csrss.exe, ccevtmgr,rdl rolex, toolbar etlrlws in the log files. avg didn't save a log, my bad. thanks for any help.
