OK I downloaded this file from Tucows trying to get a keylogging program. While I was downloading my anti virus program picked up 2 virus-signatures which I told it to wipe. Now this application is on my desktop and can't be removed - when I try to do so it says it's being used by another person or program. I also tried deleting it in Safe Mode, to no avail. This has me a bit worried... :tazz:

PS: sorry if I have the wrong forum here. My computer runs Windows XP.

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.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

OK I ran through the steps on that Symantec site, but couldn't find any of the folders or registry values it was talking about... I guess my AV blocked those from being created? I also went to the malware forum that you provided the link for. Couldn't find the "CLICK HERE" anywhere. Had a look at the pinned topics but nothing seemed to be appropriate. I've also run an AV check using that online "F-Secure", as well as Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D scans which returned nothing special. I did manage to delete the file though. Here's what I did.

1: open task manager. I stopped all of the processes that didn't come up with the error of "critical process" except for explorer. Tried deleting - no go. Also tried deleting through the command prompt at this point no go.

2: Stopped explorer, then seing as that takes any other way of getting to it away, I ran command through the task manager (File --> New Task (Run..)). Typed in "cd desktop" to get the the folder the file was in (on my desktop obviously) then put in "del i_bpk_lite.exe". It worked! Restarted explorer through task manager. Success! It's gone. Did a restart and now everything seems fine.

You should still post a hijack this log just in case you've picked something else up.
