Hi,
Nod32 always finds some intected files.
I often see them in this path:
Documents and Settings/My Name/Impostazioni locali/Temp
I have to delete them manually.
The infected files are:

17exhmunmlclr10
48exhmunmlclr10
67exhmunmlclr10
74exhmunmlclr10

Today I have just found these but I often find many other infected
files. Every week  my NOD32 finds 20 infected files.
Are they virus? How could I solve this problem?
Thanks

Your online/surfing habits, coupled with perhaps the insecure browser
you are using, and perhaps you open unsolicited email attachments.

Did you read my link?

Beauregard is telling you that your computer habits (especially your
web-surfing habits) are exposing your computer to unwanted stuff. Either
change those habits, or continue to remove infected files manually.

Prevention is better than cure, here's some points to consider:

Use several anti-malware programs. Anti-malware programs are not 100%
effective in detecting and removing malware, each will detect stuff that
others miss. Run an anti-virus program in the background (set it to
start when you boot the computer). From time to time, disconnect from
the internet, shut down the background AV program, and run all the other
anti-malware programs one at a time. Based on your report of what Nod32
found, I advise you to do this at least once a week.

If you are connected to the internet via a modem, get a router, connect
the computer(s) to it, and the router to the modem. All routers have
built-in firewalls, so you will have an added layer of protection.
They're cheap, too. I paid about $30 for mine (four ports, connecting a
wireless base for the laptops, and two desktop machines.)

Anti-malware programs occasionally produce false positives. If you have
been removing files reported as infected, and have noticed no bad
effects, then you can go on removing them. If you have doubts, change
their names by adding a number or letter at the end of the file name,
and see what happens. If nothing happens, delete the file. If something
goes wrong, restore the original file name.
