User virus

Dell Optiplex 745 desktop
July 27, 2009 at 19:32:59
Specs: Windows XP
I don't know if this really is a virus.
The name of the process copies the name of the account I'm using in my PC.
For example, I logon to "Me" user. Thru the task manager, I can see a "Me.exe" process running. If I switch to another account, say "Admin", an "Admin.exe" runs in the background.
Since this process began, I have not been able to end/kill any process using Task Manager. Moreover, I could not even properly eject/remove any removable storage I plugged into my PC. It always says that the disk is currently in use, and cannot be removed, even though I haven't yet accessed anything yet.
Please enlighten me on this.
Thank you!

Hi, jdk!

Yes. I have even tried a full system scan but detected nothing, using McAfee and Norton (which, by the way, are updated weekly).

Note: I can help you remove malware manually. Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible. First Track this topic. Then follow:

1) Can you please post your AVZ log:
Note: Run AVZ in windows normal mode and make sure you are connect to internet. If avz.exe doesn't start, then try to rename the file avz.exe to something else and try to run it again. Make sure you have your web browser open in background before following the steps below.

i) To create the log file, download AVZ by clicking HERE. Please save this file to your desktop or "My Documents" folder.

ii) Next, unpack the file to a new folder using the Compressed (zipped) folders wizard built into Windows XP/Vista, or a zip utility of your choice.

iii) Once you have unpacked the contents of the zip archive, please launch the file AVZ.exe by double clicking on it or right clicking and selecting Open.
Note: If you are running Windows vista launch AVZ.exe by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator.

You should now see the main window of the AVZ utility. Please navigate to File->Custom Scripts. Copy the script below by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+C or the corresponding option via right click.


Paste the script into the execution window by using CTRL+V keyboard shortcut, or the "paste" option via the right click menu. Click on Run to run the script, the PC will reboot. After the reboot the LOG subfolder is created in the folder with AVZ, with a file called inside. Upload that file to and paste the link here.

2) Download and Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log: DDS Tool Download Link. When done, DDS will open two (2) logs

   1. DDS.txt
   2. Attach.txt

Upload the logs to and paste download link in your next reply.
Note: Disable any script-blocking programs and then double-click on the DDS.scr icon to start the program. If you did not disable a script-blocker that may be part of your antimalware program, you may receive a warning from your antimalware product asking if you would like DDS.scr to run. Please allow it to do so.

If I'm helping you and I don't reply within 24 hours send me a PM.
