Setup.exe and autorun.inf created constantly

  1. I'm having a strange problem. Files "setup.exe" and "autorun.inf" keeps getting created in several folders, and NOD32 kept detecting other .exe files as W32.Tenga.gen virus.

    I disabled windows restore, started on safe mode, made a full scan with no luck.

    Would you advice me to switch from Nod32 to AVG? Here I attach Hijackthis! log.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    That`s quite a nasty infection you have there.

    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:
