Hi Trevuren,
What did you mean when you said "Thats not how microsoft does things"? Also I think the update.exe was the microsoft automatic update because in the Software Distribution folder there was a text file named ReportingEvents.txt that listed the downloaded files. Does that mean I've downloaded loads of Spyware?
Also there are lots of hidden folders in my Windows folder with names like $NtUninstallQ828026$, what are they for?

Listen EightBall,

You need to sit back and take a big breath here. Everything is normal. Yes these are normal folders to find on a Windows syste. My system has over 20 of these. They are Windows Updates that can be removed some day if you want to. (In most cases). DO NOT TOUCH THEM.

Now relax,

Every time you get an update, it is registered and the info retained.

You and I are apparently not talking about the same things.

Do you still have any more malware-related programs?

This is what you said:

"That's not how Microsoft does things.
I have the same system as you and mine does not have that folder. It is a collecting point for malware. If you insist on keeping an empty folder, be my guest."

I cant delete the folder. It keeps reappearing.

Then just leave the empty folder.

Do you have any more malware-related problems? If not, please send me a final HJT for review and if everything is still Ok, I will provide you with the instructions for the final but essential cleanup.

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1. Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
2. Left click on "System Restore Tab"
3. Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
4. Left click on "Apply"

TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1.Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
2.Click on "Apply"

2. Cleanup the leftovers. Download CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.


3. Finally, Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.


Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

Make sure you keep your Windows OS current by visiting Windows update
regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. With out these you are leaving the backdoor open.

I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My Favorite)
