My system is infected with virus.  I am not sure the nmae of the virus as the anti virus program is not detecting the virus.    What i noticed is that files videos.exe and new folder.exe is present plus a number of other executable.  The students are unable to logout and the virus is spreading.  You can see attached file for example.

Go to the Run Command (Start->Run) Type msconfig, press Enter. Go to the Startup tab and look down the Items. See if anything such as the Video.exe or NewFolder.exe is running. Uncheck the box, then hit apply. It will ask for a restart, so go ahead. This should disable the programs from starting up, in turn allowing you to delete the folders. After deleting, run several different anti-virus programs. One program alone usually doesn't fix the problem. AVG free is a good free program (http://free.avg.com/) or CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/download). They require you to create an account, and it gives you a 30 day trial on the CCleaner. Hope this helps!

When I check processes I realize that a lsass.exe file if running from c:\winnt\db5d\lsass.exe also services.exe is running from the same path likewise csrss.exe.  I have Mcafee on my system ver 8 fully updated and it is running over the file and no recognizing them as malware/virus/trojans.

Run Flash_Disinfector.exe or Combofix:
1. Download and run this tool and follow the prompts:

2.  Please download ComboFix by sUBs:
You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply by pasting it in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

I captured the virus and sent it to Mcafee, in which they gave me an extra.dat file that fixed the problem.  The virus was key logger.
