Hello I had some issues with Brave sentry on christmas eve. I was able to remove that but now my problem is an error message that pops up every couple of seconds. It happens in both my profile and my wifes profile as well. The message generated is a 16 bit DOS subsystem. Path is provided as C:\documents and settings\profile\localsettings\temp\cmd.exe I have tried to delete this file but it continues to come back. This must be a malicous trojan but unable to figure out how to kill it. I have gone into safe mode and ran ad aware, AVG antivirus, and AVG spyware. I installed the spybot product you mentioned in this forum. I have not been able to run spybot as it crashes when ever I try to run it. I have run the AVG and placed the logfile for this and HJK as well. I hope you will be able to assist me in removing this problem. Also I now get a message about the winsock32.exe when shutting down. I have to hit end now to stop it.
