Hi All,

I ran Malwarebytes and it indicated that my computer is infected with backdoor.bot and malware.trace, i have tried using the remove infected file option now like 10 times and each time after the reboot these files reappear. I really don't want to format the machine so any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Following is the log i get after using MBAM:

Have you tried manually removing the files from the System32 folder? - they are both definitely nasties - you may need to do it in safe mode, which could be the problem MBAM is having.

Thanks for your reply, i have tried that but have had no luck! Since i am running out of time i have decided to go ahead and format the machine, which seems to be the fastest way to go.

thanks for your help, really appreciated.
