I run a system scan once a week with Avira. This week it threw up a hidden object when it did the 'Hidden objects search'. I'm pretty sure it found just one hidden object, then it advised me to restart my system and scan again, and it found 2 hidden items on the 2nd scan.

I'm attaching the logfile to my post. Anybody have any suggestions on how to proceed?

The first one is related to Avira so it's basically detecting itself.

The second may be related to Avira as well but it's not specified.

Please download GMER from: http://www.gmer.net

Click on the "Download EXE" button and save the randomly named .exe file to your desktop.

Note: You must uninstall any CD Emulation programs that you have before running GMER as they can cause conflicts and give false results.

Double click the GMER .exe file on your desktop to run the tool and it will automatically do a quick scan.

If the tool warns of rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a full scan, click on No and make sure the following are unchecked on the right-hand side:

IAT/EAT
Any drive letter other than the primary system drive (which is generally C).

Click the Scan button and when the scan is finished, click Save and save the log in Notepad with the name ark.txt to your desktop.

Note: It's important that all other windows be closed and that you don't touch the mouse or do anything with the computer during the scan as it may cause it to freeze. You should disable your screen saver as if it comes on it may cause the program to freeze.

Open the ark.txt file and copy and paste the contents of the log here please.
