Windows 7: rundll32.exe and virus on $recycle.bin

rundll32.exe and virus on $recycle.bin

My brother downloaded a virus yesterday. It was now deleted in both C: and recycle bin. I run a smart scan using my antivirus. And it found 4 virus on $Recycle.bin. Also, on the task manager, on the processes tab, there is a foreign process called rundll32.exe. Ending this process does nothing I think. Whenever I right click any process inside the task manager (and in the task bar) the menu hide itself behind the task manager so I can't click any options. Is this some sort of virus or what? How can I delete those virus on $Recycle.Bin? Thanks!

Here's the screenshot:

I found some threats but the threat in $Recycle.bin is still there. Is there anything I can do to delete these virus?

Try to restore the recycle bin to default using this tutorial:

Next, please do the following:


Let see what else is going on here:

1.) Download malwarebytes anti malware found here:

BryanJames16,

Please use the following diagnostic tool. It has a powerful detection mechanism, and may help us get to the cause of your issues:

Please use the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.
Download: Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Select the version that applies to your system: 64-bit
Save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.

When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
At the program's console, press the Scan button.

When done, the tool produces a log, FRST.txt, in the same directory from which the tool is run (Desktop).
Please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.

The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log: Addition.txt
Also post the Addition.txt in your reply.

I agree with andrew. If you are dealing with something like ZeroAccess, it is best to be safe than sorry.
