  1. Norton system scan is finding a virus in my Temp folder, and keeps saying it has deleted it, but it continues to pop up over and over again. My computer has suddenly become very laggy, and Firefox is shutting down... it's also creating random icons on my Desktop. This is what system scan tells me about the problem.

    Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan
    Event: Security Risk Found!
    Threat: Backdoor.Graybird
    File: C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\$46A06~1.T$M
    Location: Unknown Storage
    Computer: #####
    User: #####\Owner
    Action taken: Clean failed : Quarantine failed : Delete succeeded : Access denied
    Date found: Wednesday, January 30, 2008 4:14:34 PM

    Any suggestions on how to get rid of it?

    First download and run CCleaner

    Once that is complete, follow these steps precisely

    You will then be required to submit (via attachment) your HJT logs and scan results

    Running the above proceedure will clean most computers of malware, submitting the attachments is for any further areas that could not be resolved, and to confirm all ok
