  1. I am running
    windows xp professional sp2
    Dell Deminsion 8400

    pentium 4 3,40ghz

    1 gb ram

    I dont know how this happened i recently restored my system with a ctrl f11 and restored it back to original. It must be something i downloaded, because it only opens or reappears in my ares shared folder.. i checked my windows folder and my system 32 for any new files added and so far nothing strange. winrar never opens up and shows it is putting the files back they just reappear in my shared folder after a while . I checked my services and my processes running. Tell the truth i don't see anything funny activated but some of the extensions are foreign looking to me anyways lol. Any help would be appreciated.

    Follow the directions HERE and HERE.

    It does sound like you may be infected. Also, what are the names of these .rar files?
