Im having the same problem with only one difference - no msgames.exe
Im getting the same error and after it my internet connection starts acting strange and im getting very strange errors like the one that my sound card drivers arent installed.
A restart helps but not for long.

Anyway, here is my log file from hijackthis:

Hi duub7,

First of all- welcome to DaniWeb :)

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Given that, I've split youtr request into a new thread of it's own.

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:


Thanks for understanding.


Allright, sorry for that :)
I just had problems with that worm and didnt have much time until the intenret dissapeared so i didnt read the rules. It used to dissapeare after 5 minutes and the only way to get it back was a restart.
Anyway, i wanted to let you know that i got rid of the worm. Just went to microsoft.com and updated my windows completele - it took about 5 or 6 restarts but when it was finally finished the problem was gone :)
