ok, well it's weird that all those other scanners missed it but that screenshot looks fairly specific, so just to be safe i'm going to go ahead and shut down the site and try to figure out what may be going on, contact my host etc. this release will be postponed until i'm confident there is no threat.

drats, my plans for world domination have been foiled once again..
heh, well, for whatever it's worth at this point, i kind of thought you (DrHiQ) were joking for some reason. i guess since you didn't tell me which antivirus you used or give any details, and since all the scans i ran came up empty handed. it's dumb i know but if i thought you were being serious i wouldn't have replied the way i did.
and i viewed timp's bringing it up as a bit 'funny' considering the nature of his first post in here. i wasn't aware but there have been a lot of attacks on wordpress sites lately, and its funny but my host has apparently been ranked #1 by some Australian org, at preventing this. hopefully timp's mentioning that the site worked for him before then quit working, means it's only been there since today.
my host is scanning everything at my site and say they will provide me with a list of any trouble files to delete, gave me some additional steps and say that due to the nature of the recent attacks it should be safe after that. you guys can make out of all this whatever you see fit. the site should be back up within a day and i'll have them rescan first to be sure, after i've removed anything they've flagged, and i'll be thinking about how/if i should proceed with smooth 609a in the meantime...
edit- i have an archive of my site on my disk here and the avira scan turned nothing up in it. i grabbed that archive within the past few weeks so it has to be more recent than that.
This is the best way to stop *your* computer getting anything nasty which could theoretically then get into your site.
You will need someone to help you with this if you are not an expert as you need some understanding of how servers work (.htaccess files), but my research tells me to install the free BulletProof Security Plugin
i've had my host scan the site, i scanned it myself, found a few flagged files, deleted those, then went through and reverted large chunks of my site to the older version i had, made sure all my wp plugs were updated along with wp itself, etc etc etc rescanned, everything came up clean.
and added some additional security measures.
site's back up. now i'm back to working on the comp.
