    I have AVG 6.0, SPYBot S&D, and now Hijackthis.

    I read a forum about someone else having this same thing. I found it with AVG, but it does only put it in the vault for a little bit. I read the forum and followed all the steps with hijackthis and spybot. This is the log

    Then I scanned with my AVG and it says virus not found, but its still in the vault. the file path is this : C:\Windows\profiles\coartster\local settings\temporary internet files\content.ie5\X0OBXD4T\INSTAL˜1.exe

    if that helps any, i hope it does, if not, I am sorry I am not very computer literate. :(
    thanks!
