I received an alert from my PC-cillin telling me that it found and removed the worm agobot.vk. Virus scans and spyware scans are not turning up anything. The problem is that my computer is running slow and seems to be randomly locking up or giving errors. Here is my highjack log:

The file that was reported as removed was c:\my documents\audio2.exe. However, this file is still in the directory. Here is the new HJT log:

Here is something to try:

""Open Windows Task Manager.
» On Windows 95, 98, and ME, press
CTRL+ALT+DELETE
» On Windows NT, 2000, and XP, press
CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, then click the Processes tab.
In the list of running programs*, locate the process:
audio2.exe
Select the malware process, then press either the End Task or the End Process button, depending on the version of Windows on your system.
To check if the malware process has been terminated, close Task Manager, and then open it again.
Close Task Manager.""


Just to see if it might still be running or anything.

Try an online scan here:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

If you cant get there or some other sites, its a good indication of still active infection.

Cleaners will leave files behind, stripped of viral code perhaps... or there can be more than one copy...

There are also legitimate files named audio2.exe> I think you would know if you used it.
