Malwarebytes found this...

I'll do the other scans and see what shows up.

It doesn't seem to have resolved the virus dropper issue though as Avast still tells me it exists. Is it worth using the Malicious Software Removal Tool by Microsoft?

You could try copying/restoring that file and try uploading it to virustotal, the problem being MBAM restores to the original location (I don't like that with suspect stuff), this isn't the same as the MediaIconsOverlays.dll as system restore changes the file name but retains the file type and this isn't a dll file.

I'm not a fan of the Malicious Software Removal Tool as I don't think you have a great deal of control over it.

Do you actually have the Microsoft Media Tools installed ?
I can't ever remember installing this on either of my systems, so I obviously don't need it. I just wonder if you did install it, have you ever used/need it ?

No, the mediaiconsoverlays was created a little more than 2 weeks previous to the movies.

I can also only find it in the offending folder, not the one you suggest.

There's definitely something up because I was actually away when those films were downloaded.

I attach the OTL log.

OK, I take it you are using the information and tools mentioned in the 'Logs to assist in cleaning malware' topic, http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0 if so when you have the other logs attached I will get a malware removal specialist to take a look at them.

EDIT: A malware removal specialist has been informed of your topic.

I'm exhausting every angle because I'm worried that something is working away in secret (and that it may be slowing up my internet connection). I haven't heard of many of those films nevermind downloaded them.

I restored the file that MBAM found but now I can't find it.

AswMbr log here.

RogueKiller logs (though I'm not sure I needed to do them).

My system just rebooted itself and then on reboot told me that windows had recovered from a serious problem (can't remember the exact terminology).

It gave me the following error report (code).

BCCode : 1000000a     BCP1 : 00000023     BCP2 : 00000002     BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : 8050B781     OSVer : 5_1_2600     SP : 2_0     Product : 256_1

No I was just curious as to whether that is part of the problem  ;D

I've run your fix and scanning the system now. Is it likely that this has been the cause of a very erratic internet speed over the last month or so (the fact that the dates of the files coincide with the problems points in that direction)?

I attach the scan log.

I see that windows updates are set to disabled .. Did you do that ?

There is probably a correlation in the performance and the files

No, I never did that (as far as I know).

The internet is working faster than it has in weeks... I still have to keep an eye on it as it has been going fast, then slow, then fast, then slow etc, but I feel there is a significant improvement so fingers crossed.

OK go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

Locate these two services

wscsvc
wuauserv


Right click them
Select Properties
In the drop down box set them to Auto
And then click Apply > OK

I can't find anything of those names.
