    I would like you to do an online scan so that we can what else may be in your system,
    Run Kaspersky online scanner
    With the exception of Internet Explorer, which must be used for this scan, keep ALL programs closed
    Note: It is recommended to disable onboard antivirus program and antispyware programs while performing scans to speed up scan time and to make sure there are no conflicts.
    Do not go surfing while your resident protection is disabled!
    Once the scan is finished remember to re-enable resident antivirus protection along with whatever antispyware application you use.


    Do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner in Internet Explorer. You will be prompted to install and run an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
    Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75%. Once the licence accepted, reset to 100%.
    • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
    • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
    • Now click on Scan Settings
    • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
      o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      o Extended (If available, otherwise use standard)
      o Scan Options:
      o Scan Archives
      o Scan Mail Bases
    • Click OK
    • Under select a target to scan, select My Computer
    • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
    • Please do not use your computer while the scan is running. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Click the Save Report As... button (see red arrow below)

    P2P PROGRAMS

    IMPORTANT I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Person to Person) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

    Azureus
    LimeWire 4.12.6


    I'd like you to read the Guidelines for P2P Programs where we explain why it's not a good idea to have them.

    Also available here.

    My recommendation is you go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the programs listed above (in red).

    If you wish to keep them, please do not use them until your computer is cleaned.

    A good example of this is the fact that this file is infected.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\new music\torrent\Nero 8 Crack.rar


    This file is also infected so you will need to delete it as well

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar\jvmimpro.jar-51fad18-306ecb78.zip
