    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You`ve managed to infect your system with a backdoor trojan. never open anything you`re not sure about, particularly if you think it looks suspicious.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    A reformat should`ve got rid of any nasties you had.

    If you`re not sure, please post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)
