Recently I got some type of virus that locked up my desktop background and flashed a warning sign indicating that my computer was infected and that I should fix this with a spyware program (a link which led to some no-name program that was all part of the virus).

Also, it looks like I have some type of autorun program that gives me an error message when I try to access the C drive. I ran Autorun Eater and it says the file is named
RECYCLER\S-3-0-42-100019324-100024631-100019846-1112.com c:\

shellexecute="RECYCLER\S-3-0-42-100019324-100024631-100019846-1112.com c:\"
shell\Open\command="RECYCLER\S-3-0-42-100019324-100024631-100019846-1112.com c:\"

I clicked "Remove autorun.inf", but it keeps coming back.
Not sure if these are 2 separate problems or one in the same. Please let me know! It has taken hours and hours of my time trying to figure this out!

Also, here is my Hijack This Log:

Hi and welcome to daniweb. Can't really comment on the Autorun Eater program as I have never used it. Please turn it off for now.

You are running a several years out of date version of HiJackThis, you need to uninstall it and download the newest version from HERE

BEFORE you run HiJackThis again you need to do the following:
You are NOT running an anti-virus program, at least there is none showing in your log. This is a MUST.
Two of the best available are FREE. Pick ONE, download, install, update and run a FULL scan with it. Fix/remove or Quarantine EVERYTHING it finds.

Avira Free



Download ATF-Cleaner.exe by Atribune(Windows XP, 2K, 2003 & Vista ONLY)

• You can put ATF-Cleaner on your Desktop for easy access.
RUN ATF-Cleaner.exe.

-- Click on ATF-Cleaner to run it
-- Where it says Select Files To Delete, Check the Select All Option
-- Click Empty Selected > OK

If you use Firefox browser, do this also:

* Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
* Click the Empty Selected button.
* NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, click No at the prompt.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

REBOOT the computer.
Once you have rebooted then run a new HJT scan with that new version. Save the log.
Post back here with the findings from the anti-virus scan, the MBA-M log and the new HJT log.
