Hello I hope you can help me with my problem as it has baffled me and I have googled and googled and found no help.

My problem is that all my files begining with the letter Q are dissapearing. It began with all my music from the band Queen. I have tried ripping these tracks back onto my computer but they disapear. Quicktime disapeared, and I have tried several methods (apple.com,torrent, p2p..) to download the installer but the file is gone as soon as the download ends. Also, when I try to name a folder with the beginning letter being Q it vanishes as well. I have updated and run my scanners (Ad-Aware, AVG, Trojan Hunter, Avast, Spybot S&D, cswshredder, Bazooka) but my system is clean of malware, what is causing this?

you are infected with a varient of the backdoor trojan haxdoor. This program hides Q files to protect itself from your deleting it.

Please visit the malware forum, follow the instructions at the top, and then post a hijackthis log THERE with a thread titled "Likely haxdoor trojan infection"
