Hi,
I believe one of our users has been affected with a virus and/or spyware. When the computer starts everything is normal, as soon as the internet starts, multiple username.exe processes start running. The CPU then maxes out and an enforced shutdown occurs. We arre running mcafee enterprise 8.5.0 (DAT 5569) with antispyware module, have also run adaware and superantispyware. Nothings finds the problem. other user profiles have not been affected. Any ideas?
Thanks a lot

Slave the hard disk in another computer and use a good anti virus application such as NOD32.  It is quite probable that the virus is suppressing McAfee and that is why it is not working.

Is this script yours ?, if so then please ignore .
 O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SCRIPT_EFS] C:\WINDOWS\system32\Script_MyDocuments_Permissions.vbs
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LCSGetUserInfo] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\LCSGetUserInfo.vbs
Also thois entry looks strange, is it an application you know ? , if not , then it can be fixed using Hijack this
 O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [UKDSTJME] D:\Documents and Settings\ukdstjme\UKDSTJME.exe /i
 O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [] D:\Documents and Settings\ukdstjme\.exe /i
Please Download Malwarebytes Antimalware, install, update online & run a full scan in safe mode if possible, please allow the program to fix the findings & post MBAM log as well as an updated Hijack this log.
finally , Please post the Event log , attach the .EVT file for Application & system after renam,ing to .txt from the impacted machine.
I would be more interested in the one for application.

As soon as I ran the log, I realised that the exe running from the users profile cant be right, so I started in safe mode and deleted the ukdstjme.exe. Since doing that I havent had any problems with the pc. I ran antispyware from safe mode, but it didnt find anything. Could the actual spyware have been removed and this was just a residual program left?
