Ok, so as i'm sitting here at work where I am a technician, I am completely being owned by this particular virus on this client's machine.
I have turned off system restore, I have deleted all temporary folders/files and have used a multitude of anti virus and anti spyware programs such as AdAware, AdAware Away, Spybot S&D, AVG Free, HiJackThis etc.
I have scanned through registry thoroughly and cannot locate the source of this darned Virus.
It is generating a new name (*.exe) and can be viewed running in Task Manager. As soon as its process has been ended, another randomly named .exe appears.
The trickiest part of this for me is that it doesn't display any visible symptoms, so I cannot begin to google it for a solution.
The programs I have used do not pick this up at all. Machine is running XP Home.
Does anyone have any ideas?
EDIT:: Forgot to mention there is no Startup object for this particular process. Nothing in msconfig. The process seems to be starting from c:\windows\system32 and is displayed as c:\windows\system32\RandomName.exe r
