Hi. My computer is doing all kinds of crazy things. First, every time I boot my computer, there are two particular files on the desktop, four in a My Documents Folder, and one other in a Desktop Folder. I delete these files, which have names like "pffukky.t" every time, and they always come back.
Also, I can run almost zero of my security programs. When I open them, the window stays up very briefly, and then it closes. The only reason I got a HijackThis log is because I quickly clicked System Scan and Log File, then Select All and Ctrl-C when the text file popped up. This took a few tries, because the text file would close quickly, too. Ewido also does not work in Normal Mode. In Safe Mode, these programs work, but the computer just randomly shuts down before anything finishes any scanning. Also, my Symantec Antivirus Software somehow got erased. I tried to open it with the icon in the Tray, and it couldn't find it.
I am getting quite frustrated, and I hope you can help me.
Here's the HijackThis Log:

Wow, quick note. In trying to open the log file, I had to do the quick Copy thing again because the text file would just close. When I just open Notepad, and a new document comes up, it doesn't close. Curious...Good thing I have quick reflexes, I guess. Here's the log:

You may want to print this or save it to notepad as we will go to safe mode.

Fix these with HiJackThis – mark them, close IE, click fix checked

DownLoad http://www.downloads...org/KillBox.zip or
http://www.thespykil...les/killbox.exe

Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\adirss.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wservice.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\taskdir.exe

Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

START – RUN – type in %temp% - OK - Edit – Select all – File – Delete

Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp

Not all temp files will delete and that is normal
Empty the recycle bin
Boot and post a new log from normal NOT safe mode

Please give feedback on what worked/didn’t work and the current status of your system

Freakin' sweet...

The files don't pop up anymore, HijackThis works like it should in Normal Mode, and a relatively RAM-hogging program that hadn't been working is.

Thanks.

Here's a fresh HijackThis Log:
