Hi there,

so, I've tried to run every antivirus/antispyware program i know (which is not a lot). However, I'm still finding that a folder keeps getting created in my 'documents and settings' directory. The folder is labelled "Complete" and inside the folder, are many many hundreds and thousands of files. They are supposedly zipped files, but when i try to open them, it opens a file called video, but the file isn't openable. Each time I delete the entire folder, it comes back and more and more of these zipped files keep appearing. They are all the same size.

Also, I can't get into my task manager to see what is running. I've tried going into 'start, run, taskmgr', but an error message pops up that says "Another program is currently using this file". I have no idea how to get into it.

I've tried running HiJackThis, but I'm at a loss at trying to even begin to understand the log. I'm not computer knowledgeable, so please please help!

Thank-you so much for taking the time!

PS. I just saw your 'before you post a hijackthis log' folder and i will follow those instructions.

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
