    Hey there.. I recently took a trip out of town and used the hotel's wifi to connect to the internet for checking emails.. within about 15 minutes of the connection, however, internet explorer started going nuts and popping up windows left and right. I quickly killed the connection, and setup a scan with Free AVG 8.0 once i got back home on my own network. AVG detected a single trojan downloader and some additional trojans and moved them to the virus vault. Everything seemed to be working fine but about 2 hours ago everything went nuts again.

    The following processes show up when the incident happens:
    I do not use Internet Explorer myself, i prefer Firefox, but its become an issue. Ive blocked access to Internet explorer and set firefox as my default, which prevents the IE windows from flooding the screen, but the processes still try to run from time to time. I shut 'em back down every time I see them, and on recommendation from a ventrillo pal, came here.

    I have attached a HiJackThis log to this post in hopes that I can get help finding the true source of the infection and rip it's bloody heart out so I can finally use the rest of my network online.
