Virus, pos.tmp files, C: has red X

Dell Dimension 4600 desktop
January 8, 2011 at 13:15:19
Specs: Windows XP
I have multiple TMP files that recently appeared on my C: drive after I had a few virus infections. Some of the viruses are remedied but I have a red X showing next to my C: drive in my computer, however I can still navigate the C drive. Based on similiar entries I have seen I have already downloaded Hijack this and can put a log file up if needed. Can someone please help me.

Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.

When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.
