Hello,
I downloaded a file sent to me by an unknown. When the file showed unverifiable I did not open it. Now at each start up I get this alert asking me if I am sure I want to run the software. I press cancel and it goes away. I want this off of my system as I'm sure it's doing damage. I ran Norton repair and it did not help. I searched EE and saw a similar question listed about the same file name, so I followed the first instructions by downloading hijackthis and doing a scan. I DIDN'T MAKE ANY CHANGES...I will now upload the file link here for your review...Please Help!

Run HJT again and put a checkmark next to the entry:
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=explorer.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\Venus\Application Data\wtdh2ahuy1wbocdcmxnzeorsrgpk3vn2\csrss.exe"

Then let HJT fix it.

Afterwards, download Malwarebytes and run a complete scan: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

No problem :)

Don't forget to run the Malwarebyte's scan in order to clean up and check for other nasties.
