hpqthb08.exe Virus?

I am quite sure I have been infected with some sort of virus.

What happens is that I turn on my computer and immediately received a message. The first read (with "hpqthb08.exe - Fatal error" as the title):

CLR error: 800700b.
The program will now terminate.

Nothing happened, I closed the window. Then, I restarted it the next day and got a message in Indonesian (what I presume it to be) that mentioned the words "virus" and "trojan", and said the email address [email protected] at the bottom. A bit of the text:

Dengan hormat kapada bapak/ibu/saudara saya hormati di komputer ini.

Sebelumnya kami mohon maaf jika menggangu bapak\ibu\saudara atas tampilan ini.

It, too, is titled hpqthb08.exe but I have yet to click the only button that is available to click (which reads "Isi Sekarang," and there are no X or minimize or any other kind of buttons). I have yet to click it for fear it will activate something and won't until I have the problem removed and cleaned.

I have done nothing on the computer since, aside from open a couple of pictures and Notepad documents to see if everything is running ok (It was). McAfee detected nothing, and the only problem is that after I close a program (Notepad, for example), the image just stays there, but it isn't stuck as I can go on clicking other things. You can't close it or do anything to it, but it's still there.

Any ideas on what to do? I can provide a HijackThis log in a little while (The problem is with my laptop and I have to use the desktop with Internet to post, and I am being exiled). Should I uninstall McAfee and install Norton instead? Should I click the "Isi Sekarang" gray box?

Thanks muchly! :whistling:

I've received some more information about what my problem may be. I finally found an Indonesian translator and have learned the gist of the pop-up message I received:


with the honour kapada Sir/the mother/relatives were honored by me in this computer.
Beforehand we apologised if menggangu Sir\the mother\relatives were upper tampilan this.
We will only give important information for my colleague whether where.
We requested the father/the mother/relatives bekenan filled up the name that was put forward by us.
Once more we stressed this not trojan that was damaging like available lately, but trojan this will help you to eliminate the variant virus brontok.
Possibly this virus really miriip with brontok but did not damage.
Thank you

The contents Now

Really scary. I have yet to turn off the computer since I received the message.

So I guess it's the Brontok virus, if that's any help. I would grateful for any suggestions on what to do next!
