Hello dazlia, welcome to Geeks To Go. :tazz:

Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

Scan with Ewido trojan scanner:
  • Run Ewido.
  • Click on scanner.
  • Click Complete System Scan.
  • Let the program scan the machine.
  • When it finds a bad file, it will ask you what you want to do with it. You must make a selection before you continue scanning.
    • Ewido has been detecting false positives lately, so do not select "Perform action with all infections".
    • Unless it is a file you know to be legitimate, select remove and click OK.
    • If you know the file is legitimate, select none and click OK.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report.
    • Click Save report.
    • Save the report to your desktop.
Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!
Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

Do you know if this file is legitimate?:
Visit it in Windows Explorer and right-click > "Properties" for more information.

Also, is Timbuktu legitimatly installed on your computer? If it is it is probably work related. Here is a description:

With Timbuktu Pro, you can control or observe a remote PC or Macintosh, from anywhere on your network, including dialing in from off campus. Timbuktu is especially helpful for user support and management of remote servers. You can also transfer files between Macintosh and PC platforms easily, without using a server.
