    Perhaps not because the file names looks like from a real malicious ones

    I was thinking the same thing.
    In my experience, seeing .dll and .exe files with nonsensical random character names, that get detected by AV's and AS's, usually aren't false positives.

    The System and Shared folder are pretty common places for malware to dump their files.

    And I'm always reading that the Ant-spyware component doesn't work! :D

    Hello,

    I had a bit of difficulty reading the names of the files in the image you linked to, but I do not believe that what you are experiencing is related to the issue which occurred earlier today.

    one file I could read:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\service.exe - spyware for sure

    you have a nastly little infection going on there it seems - virtumonde at it's best (worst)... can be quite troublesome to eradicate ALL the components and droppers to ensure your machine remains clean!
