Further update - I'm now also getting additional virus found messages.  Logs attached.   Ahhhrrrggg! :(


Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note:  In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
[*]Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
[*]Close any open browsers.
[*]Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
-----------------------------------------------------------[*]Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
[*]Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.[/color]
[*]Close any open browsers.
[*]WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
[*]Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
[*]If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
-----------------------------------------------------------[*]Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
[*]When finished, it will produce a report for you. 
[*]Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
**Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

You are still using the beta version of HJT (there is a more up to date one, I gave the link) and you are still running it from the desktop.

I'm getting the same warning about the _qbotnti.exe from the same website.

Windows DEP also will say that it is closing Windows Explorer.

So what is the recommended action here?

There's mixed recommendations.  Also, what exactly is Hijack This - the name sounds like a virus itself.

Hi rockstar_not,

HijackThis and ComboFix are two of the best things that happened to malware fighters, it was made by a Dutch student by the name of Merijn Bellekom. It is NO malware, it is the best ANTI-Malware analysis tool we have, together with the more recent DSS scanner tool. Read and orientate here:
I propose you to download hjt and put a log file as an attachment to your next posting, and follow the recommendations of "oldman" as posted above,
