repetative trojan cleaned but not removed?

Hi,

I recently rebuilt PC, wiped HDD fresh XP Pro install ect. Things were fine until i decided like a moron to download a matrix style screensaver which would work on my dual monitor display. Within an hour of installing and usign the screensaver McAfee virus scan detected a trojan and deleted it. Becuase it was deleted i assumed it was cleaned and quickly uninstalled the screensaver.

Since this attack McAfee virus scan has promted me 3-4 times of a trojan, all with identical locations but with slightly different file names (the numbers change in teh file name)

See screenshot of the latest warning from McAfee Virus scan

since this is repeating and McAfee only seems to be deleting the threat rather than completely cleaning it i downloaded the below apps.

Spybot S/D
HiJackThis
Malwarebytes

Spybot scan results screenshot http://design2rent.co.uk/virus/sd.jpg

all removed now

Hijackthis log http://design2rent.co.uk/virus/hijackthis.log

never used this program before so not sure what to do with the log.

Malwarebytes results screenshot http://design2rent.co.uk/virus/mwb.jpg

nothing found



From the mcafee screenshot has anyone got any ideas why this trojan keeps returning and getting flagged as deleted but is not completely cleaned?

Any input would be great.

Cheers

PS updated the images in this topic were from 2 days ago a new image from todays scan.

the 2 highlight lines are the questionable issues the other 2 are false positives as far as i can find.

Any ideas or any more info needed to help try and clean this?

Cheers

Hello,

To turn off System Restore click Start > Right Click My Computer > Properties. Click the System Restore tab and Check "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives" Click Apply. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this then Click OK.

Turn on System Restore by Clicking Start. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. Click the System Restore tab. Uncheck "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives." Click Apply, and then OK.


Run another scan with Mcafee, it should come up clean.
