I am not sure, but I think that I was hacked again.

Not really. You "hacked" yourself bei using broken software and not
using your brain ;-)

I have a w2k SP4 full patched box

Fine.

with KerioFirewall,

Not so fine. Desktop Firewalls are _not_ useful. They can't reliable
control outgoing connections, especially if your run your computer as
Administrator (and I guess, you do). In some cases, Desktop Firewalls
aka Personal Firewalls are making your system weaker (because there were
additional bugs in some firewalls). I guess, you are working in a
network with other machines ... so check _every_ machine in your
network. And ... get off this lousy "firewalls".

Please, completely re-setup your machine and, this is important, CHANGE
EVERY PASSWORT YOU EVER USED. TROJ_PWSIM.A is a Keylogger, so every
password you typed in during the Malware was active, is PROBABLY STOLEN.

If this is the real intruder, your machine is not longer yours, probably
a zombie in a bigger Bot-Net. Now you have really to re-setup your machine.

Does anyone know some attack with this three files combination?

Read the linked pages. Additionally you can use a very good german tool:

I did really good experiences with this. Most of this $)§@&$-Malware
will not harm you anymore - if you operate your computer wisely, of course!
