    Hi raakii,

    Have you tried it with FileAssassin, it's part of MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware?
    Also read this topic for cleaning your PC by posting an hijackthis log at one of the dedicated forums. :)

    You say you have a virus problem then go on to say,
    please explain a bit more, what is nod32 and mbam saying - why do you think you have a virus?

    Hi raakii and welcome to Wilders.

    I think this is a hard disk problem. The files you mentioned are created by scandisk. Try performing a scandisk to check your C: drive for errors.

    You may also want to follow Eldar's advice just to be sure your PC is clean.

    Wait! if this is a hard disk problem in some instances a chkdsk under this circumstance may cause a loss of data, make sure you have a current backup of important data first - then look at the link above your last post.
