Anyone with real knowledge when it comes to viruses would be great here.
Im not completely computer ignorant but this is out of my league, a file was downloaded onto my computer which obviously contained a virus (norton antivirus 2011 found it instantly) , which according to security was terminated, reporting it was a infostealer virus. However upon looking at my c: drive i could see that there was obviously a brand new file which i didnt want titled "41d8af9ac95d6b556357". I can access it and its filled with sub folders with tons of numbers as titles, those of which i cannot access. Anyway I tried the good old fashioned delete at first - didnt work saying I had no permission (and i know how to rightclick>properties>security>permissions>etc..). So next i scanned with my antivirus... and my antivirus automatically skips the scan no matter what i do. I know computers record logs and whatnot and i managed to get a hold of the right one titled RHDSetup. I can post it, if someone is willing to help, its fairly interesting and its definately the bad guy but... i just cant get rid of it.
Please some one help me out here! Oh sorry if i sound like a complete idiot with computer terms.

"Anyone with real knowledge when it comes to viruses would be great here."
Have 'some' knowledge, but not sure if it's for real!! :-)
However, will be glad to help you while you are here.

See if you can interfere with the malware, by adding some random characters to the name of the file:

Just right click, Rename, and add a .xxx to the name.


Where is the malicious file located? From what you are mentioning, looks as if it in a folder...

For now, try the following:

Please download TDSSKiller
Save it to the Desktop.

Double-click* on TDSSKiller.exe to run the program.
Vista/Windows 7 users, right-click the file, and select: Run As Administrator

Click the 'Start Scan' button.

Do not use the computer during the scan

If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.

When the scan finishes it displays a Scan results screen stating whether or not an infection was found on your computer.

To remove the infection, click on the Continue button.
If it does not say Cure on the results screen, leave it at the default action of Skip, and press the Continue button.

Do not change to Delete or Quarantine as it may delete infected files that are required for Windows to operate properly.

Reboot to finish the cleaning process.

If no reboot is requested, click on: Report.

A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller. is created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).

>>Please provide the contents of TDSSKiller in your reply.<<

Let's make sure there is not some kind of BootKit involved.

Next, download aswMBR:
Save to your Desktop.

Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
Click the Scan button to start the scan

Upon completion of the scan, click the Save Log button

>>Save the aswMBR log to your Desktop, and post it in your reply.<<
