Please read the following carefully and post your decision in a reply to this post.
I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. One or more of the identified infections is a BACKDOOR TROJAN. A backdoor can give intruders complete control of your computer, log your keystrokes, steal personal information, etc.
If you have not already done so, the following steps should be taken:
* If you have ever handled anything related to money (online banking, online shopping, etc), call your bank company and say that you might be a victim of identity theft due to a computer virus which logs keystrokes.
* Next, change ALL your passwords from a different computer! Do not use them on this computer again, until we have verified that there are no remaining infections present.
Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action would be to do a reformat and reinstallation of the operating system (OS). Although an attempt can be made to continue cleaning remaining infections on this machine, we can not be certain that it afterwards will be truly clean, secure, and trustworthy.
