We need to see some additional information about what is happening in your machine.

Download and save DDS to your Desktop from either of the following links:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr
http://compendiate.net/sUBs/dds/dds.scr

Note: You must use Internet Explorer to download dds.scr, other browsers will open the file in the browser and not save it. Or if you must use Firefox, or Chrome, then right click the link and select "save link as" and save the file to your desktop.

Double-click the dds.scr file to run the program.

It will automatically run in silent mode and then you will see the following note:

"Two logs shall be created on your Desktop"

The logs will be named dds.txt and attach.txt".

Wait until the logs appear and then copy and paste their contents in your post.

Kevin....:)

i deleted all the quarantained files and they didnt come back i am doing a full scan of the system to make sure
