"Some dangerous viruses detected" trojan

  1. Hello,

    Whenever I open a Windows folder, I get the following message:

    I scanned my PC with ClamWin, Adaware, and Malewarebytes Anti-Malware. Several infected files were detected and cleaned, but the trojan still remains.

    Attached is a log file from HijackThis.

    This is the first PC virus I've got in years; is my system totally compromised? I only use my Windows partition for PC games, so nuking it would be annoying, but relatively easy if this infection compromises my security (should antivirus and anti-spyware programs fail).

    Thank you for your help.
