I am having trouble with a virus \ spyware. Every now and again my bitdefender picks up some files on the root of my D: partition called eraseme_(5 random numbers).exe which it seems to block from doing whatever it needs to do but it keeps happening over and over. Sometimes a setup.exe and autorun.inf appear on there too and im guessing its the same thing but everything I try doesnt get rid of it.

I have ran virus checks, used windows malicious software removal tool, ran spyware bot and nothing seems to get rid of it. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

I have looked on google and tried some solutions suggested from certain sites but nothing is working........

OCUK doesnt have a dedicated Anti-Malware team which is what you need to get rid of this Trojan (which is what the Eraseme is).

So I suggest you download a copy of HiJackThis (www.merijn.org) and then install and run the program, then paste a copy of the log file it generates on one of the sites listed on the left of this site: http://asap.maddoktor2.com/

All the sites listed are approved Anti-Malware specialists who will take you through removing your infection step by step and do it all for free.

It is important that you get rid of this infection as trojan can be very sneaky and give away lots of personal information.

As Una says, that is the trojan you have and they give you removal instructions here, however I would still get HiJackThis and post a log over at one of those sites as you will find that if you have a trojan like this, then you undoubtedly have more infections on your PC too.
