You have to realize your system is woefully under powered in CPU, Ram, built in video etc. Your best bet for improving performance would be to add memory.

The files that you are concerned with should be googled to see what they are and if they should be running

Do you have an AV (anti-virus program running)
If so, what is it? have you done a full system scan recently?

You can go through MSconfig (Start menu > Search > msconfig) and disable all of the non-essential programs.

Also, you can use Process Explorer (microsoft 3rd party App) to see better what is running on your computer: Process Explorer

When you find the program running, you can right click on it and select search online for online resources.

Edit: you can also, in Process Explorer, click on File then Save As and save a log of your running programs and post the .txt file here and we can review it to see know virus programs

Not at all familiar with the program 36ABB.exe and Google did not provide anything to assist. I would uncheck it so it does not load and reboot your system, the worst that can happen would be you'd get an error that something could not load and it would more than likely tell you what the program is.

I suspect you will not have ny such error and it was something either downloaded and set itself up to run. I certainly would make sure your A/V is up to date and run it after booting.

Please post in the thread instead of PM'ing. I think you have a virus on your computer so I will ask some pro's to look at the thread. One of the Security Experts might know what these programs are.

Thanks for posting that sabajordan. I posted in another thread for help for you. Hopefully a guru will see and can help. I have done virus removal before, but always locally. There are people on this forum who can help you more than I can.

I think there is a program that is running at startup need to know what other prgrams are running that could be creating these files.

you can use Task manager to see what is running, but we need to see all programs that have ran from startup. I would like you to do the following.

Get Process Monitor Process Monitor

UnZip it and run it. Set it to do BootLogging. This will allow it to capture all the programs that run from the moment the OS Starts. Restart your computer so we can have a full list of what runs. When you get back in, go to the program again. You should have a full list of programs in the list. In Files or somewhere, there should be an option to save the list as a .txt file.

Post the .txt file here so we can see what program ran that could be a virus

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

I have never seen these: 0A6A7.exe.exe , 0A6E6.exe.exe , 0A008.exe.exe , 0A197.exe.exe before. The naming looks like a BAD virus. I would build a boot CD off another known clean machine and boot off the CD and do a complete virus scan before doing anything else.

Windows 7 & Windows Vista Ultimate

Hi, sabajordan.

Indeed, those random file names are indicative of an infection. With Windows 7, you may want to first try System Restore to a point prior to when those files started appearing. Windows 7 has a much more robust System Restore than Windows XP and Windows Vista. If that doesn't work, I suggest an on-line scan. Since you have already scanned with NOD32, try F-Secure :

Go here and run an on-line scan with the F-Secure scanner .
  • Use IE (Internet Explorer), accept the license terms, and allow the Active-X controls to load.
  • Click Full System Scan and allow the components to download and the scan to complete.
  • If malware is found during the scan, check Submit samples to F-Secure and Automatic cleaning.
I suggest following that with an MBAM scan:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, be sure Quick scan is selected, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, EXCEPT items in System Restore as shown in this sample:
  • Click Remove Selected.

Let us know how you make out.
