I'm trying to make sure my friend's computer is ok after he clicked on a picture. McAfee caught the js/fakealert and the downloader-abj, but I'm seeing something called xxx854.exe that McAfee allowed to change the registry on two occasions. It's located in the windows/temp folder right next to xxx1419.exe and xxx9604.exe. Not sure when the other two got there. Anyway, it appears to be some sort of permutation of xxx.exe but i'm not sure what to do about the registry change. Is this something I can just delete?

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
