I'm at a loss to your request as this is highly suspect to have a system fine name outside of the system folders. So I don't know what help it would be removing the two lines from my post when they are in your original HJT log post and in the quoted text in your post and now here. So I'm at a loss as to the reason

thanks.

You could have done that in the first log you posted and this would have been avoided all you have done now is replicate it all over the place now  ::) ???

webbs: it's the dialog telling you that the infection was found by heuristic methods... there should be the file/process name and the name of scanner detection..

I started scanning. Around 1500 files are said to contain virus. Moved to chest. Still scanning > Got error 'Not enough disk space'. So I had to stop scan.

What I have to do with files in the chest? There are some 2000 files.

User files- NONE

SYSTEM FILES- (ONLY 3 FILES) kernel32.dll, winsock.dll, wsock32.dll

INFECTED FILES-
A0336045.exe (so many files like this)
mupasogssc.exe (many files like this nonsense names)
muusiaap.exe

These files are clean and are there for backup purposes.

INFECTED FILES-
A0336045.exe (so many files like this)
mupasogssc.exe (many files like this nonsense names)
muusiaap.exe
These seems to have interest for Maxx...

So I can delete all these 2000 files? Please tell me. I can't move any more viruses to chest (even though I increased both chest and file size). Still there are many files like those in C drive.

thanks.

How long are them in chest?
I think they can be removed if your system is working without them...

quite strange names... if they are all from the same branch, then you can remove them probably, but that's hard to say for so many files..

Click on Infected folder.
Click the first file (select it).
Click SHIFT+END at the same time.
Right click the 'blue' selected files and choose delete.

Hmmm... I've forgotten:
Follow the general cleaning procedure:

1. Clean your temporary files.
2. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast with archive scanning turned on. If avast does not detect it, you can try DrWeb CureIT! instead.
3. Use SUPERantispyware, MBAM or Spyware Terminator to scan for spywares and trojans. If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete them.
4. Test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
5. Make a HijackThis log to post here or this analysis site. Or even submit the RunScanner log to to on-line analysis.
6. Disable System Restore and then reenable it again.
7. Immunize your system with SpywareBlaster.
8. Check if you have insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector.
