  1. I have followed the excellent instructions from Julio and attached are the log files suggested.

    I guess I need some help deciphering next steps.

    Thank you for the quick reply. I had a dialogue box pop up at startup. It was the "Common Files" folder with the _helper.dll and _helper.sig files.

    My computer began to drag, very badly.

    I researched the problem and found this is not a typical malicious trojan, but common enoug to fall under a couple of names. One being DeepDive.

    I ran every tool imaginable as my McAfee system security and firewal did not catch it.

    the attached files were the output requested. I ran the scans multiple times using the the tools suggested in my original subject line. I still think I have some issues, but much has improved.

    I would appreciate deciphering the logs and information regarding how to prevent future attack.

    I can only assume this came in through an e-mail or link. I test my ports at Gibson Research


    and all appears stealthy.

    If there is a recommendation for additional tools to McAfee, that is appreciated as well.

    Thank you

    I recommend replacing Mcafee with avira.
