I have had to go back to using ADSL and in that time, some how some way, my wife's PC has gotten infested with something.
It keeps creating files with URL addresses in them. I do a system scan for the files, even searching hidden files, and they don't show up. I am pretty sure they are embedded in the system registry.
I have ran spybot, adware, hijack this, windows Antispyware, Nod32, AVG free edition, panda and trendmicro's online scanners... and no matter what I do, it keeps coming back.
One file in particular:
Yaemu.exe located in C:/Windows/system32
I cannot delete the file manually I get an access error, but hijack this supposedly fixes it.
But it doesn't.
And to beat everything, this is directly after a fresh clean install of XP. I wiped the entire hard drive because the computer suddenly started shutting itself down without notice and I was getting all kinds of .exe and .dll errors in the event viewer.
I've run memtest, did a defrag, checked the disk for errors... even now I am getting threat detections with Nod32. I have hence set it to automatically terminate the files and quarantine them prior to termination. For the next 999 minutes LOL
Whatever this is it's virulent and persistent... but so am I. I will defeat this cocksucker if it takes me the rest of my computing days. Eat shit spyware, adware, trojan and other viral makers of the internetting world!!!!
Now take a look at my screen capture:
