Hi. I've already read the FAQ, and need help getting rid of a parasite on the family computer. ve spent the past two hours trying to clean up a bunch of malware and whatnot, and I got rid of most of it, I think, but there's one file (2#AHW@K4@Y7C#G) that just will not go away, no matter how many times I try to get rid of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You have the Peper trojan, which requires special treatment to put it out of your misery!
Please download and run this uninstaller.

Click on the peperfix link, and download the program. Then go off line, and run the program. It will remove the files, leaving one orphaned entry to be cleaned up with Hijack this.

Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [2#AHW@K4@Y7C#G] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\JfmI8U2.exe

Reboot and delete the file C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\JfmI8U2.exe

These may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

Your log shows that MSConfig is running at startup. This indicates that you may be using "diagnostic startup" rather than "normal startup", to stop something running. While this is OK, when looking for malware, it is possible that you have disabled it, and it will not then show up in the Hijack this log. Before posting a fresh log, would you please open MSConfig, and choose the "normal startup" option. Then everything will be running, and if anything needs removal, we can give appropriate advice.

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!

Everything seems to be working better now, but I still might have a couple of problems. I did have that S thing disabled via MSConfig, and when I rebooted to delete the orphaned peper file, it was already gone (Edit: And I have hidden files visible, and clicked on the "show all contents of this drive" link), so I thought you might need to know that....

Thanks a lot for your help, it's greatly appreciated.
