    infected help needed - Generic.dx!hkz

      Trojan virus found. McAfee On-Access Scan keeps popping up every 5 minutes, telling me Generic.dx!hkz was found and file deleted (svchost.exe). I did run a full scan, two files were deleted. However, virus remains.

       

      Now my system behavior:

      1. every 5 minute on-access scan message pops up, a xxxx.tmp folder was created at c:\winnt\Temp (xxxx seems random) where the infected svchost.exe was which was deleted

      2. click a line on google search result bring me to a random unrelated web site, (but if I copy link location and paste the url, it seems fine)

       

      Any help how I can remove the virus will be highly appreciated!
