log.exe is a Trojan, not a virus.

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

Next download HijackThis to the desktop. Run a Full Scan with it and save the log.
Post back here with the MBA-M log and the HiJackThis log.

Not certain what you are talking about. The MBA-M program? Instructions are noted. Otherwise you wouldn't want to run the actual log.exe downloader, that is a trojan and would damage the computer.
