ok hopefully you understand... I was running adaware, and was wondering why it was taking so long to scan some folders, and i found out.

Several GIGS of 424KB zip files, with filenames that would lead you to believe it is a crack or serial (to programs which i never even heard of except Warcraft 3 shown in the first pic) are just appearing, in shared folders for P2P's, weirder that they're all P2P's i never run nomore (kazaa shown in first 3 pics, ares which i deleted the download folder so it stopped, and shareaza like in the last pic)

in all of the zip files there is one setup.exe file like the one shown in the first pic. I have profusely ran adware cleaners and virus scanners, removed everything they could, and it persists. amazes me on how gigs of this crap are sneaking their way in my harddrive.. Am i being used as a server for some serial and cracks website???

250KB so that's a warning to the unlucky 56K's. only need to look at the first one to get whats going on

ahh it finally stopped, Cretemonster (thanks dude!) helped me out right away, stepped me through to remove all the malicious stuff. several scans and killbox entries later it finally stopped! great to have space left in the harddrive because that stuff always used to spawn itself constantly until i had 0 bytes left
