I have a problem every time I start windows ME, an entry of a program namely 'bot' is automatically generated and it repeatedly increases in numbers. There are files in the root directly 'vbstub.exe, libhide.dll and system.exe. I deleted them several times but again these appear in the rootdirectory everytime I start windows.
How can I get rid of it. Sometime bot program in the task view is shown more than 20 times. What is this?

Hello and Welcome to TSF

It sounds as if your system is riddled with spyware/malware/trojans. Please follow these instructions carefully. Please note where you are to post your HJT log.

Download and install: HiJackThis.

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Do A System Scan And Save Log". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.


IMPORTANT!!!
Create a New Topic and include a fresh HJT log in the HiJackThisLog Help Forum and Copy/Paste the info from your saved Hijackthis log file into your new topic.

A Moderator/ Security Team Analyst will give you instructions.


***DO NOT TRY TO FIX ANYTHING, MAJOR DAMAGE CAN BE DONE TO YOUR SYSTEM IF THIS TOOL IS USED INCORRECTLY, PLEASE WAIT FOR AN ANALYST/MODERATOR TO GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS***


Always describe your problem and any programs you have used to try to resolve your issue. Your description can go a long way to solving/repairing your particular issue.
