Well I managed to get a Trojan from a bad download of the adobe photoshop trial, and, though I deleted it within like 9 minutes of getting it, it's done something to my computer that I can't seem to fix. It disabled system restore and tries to access the internet (which I have unplugged). About 30 minutes after it fails to access the internet, I get a force shutdown message executed by NT/Authority saying it has to shutdown because DCOM server process terminated unexpectedly.
I've run everything there is to run, adaware, spybot, spy eraser, registry booster, speedupmypc, AVG antivirus, registry defrag, chkdsk, system defrag, EVERYTHING, and I cannot fix the problem. Does anyone know a way to fix this, other than reformating? I think the trojan was called something like pronett or something along those lines.

Re: got a trojan
You will have to run a full Virus Scan in safe mode with an Anti Virus program with up to date Virus Definitions. Tap the F8 key on boot to get to the boot option screen that will allow you to select "Safe Mode", then select your operating system, then click yes on the pop up. Once in safe mode locate your Anti Virus program in your program folder and run the full/complete scan and that should fix you up.

Hi glamredhel, Norton has removed the virus or Trojan & if you have windows system restore turned on the virus or Trojan will return once the system has re-booted. Open windows device manager & shut off system restore. Re-boot your system & re-scan your system with Norton. In your case Norton did not give you instructions on how to remove the virus. (Norton did that for you). Once completed check windows update service for a possible update for your LAN. Asus does not have a separate LAN driver listed on Asus web site. The LAN driver is part of the chipset drivers. Remove your modem from the system & any software you installed with it. (If any). Restart your system. (If the system seems fine-good. Shut down the system & re-install your modem & any software. When completed do another windows restart. See if the modem functions (If your modem is either a cable or DSL reset it. Shut down the system. Located on the back of the cable modem or DSL modem you will find a tiny re-set button. Unplug the power cord from the modem. Take a pen & press the reset button for 10 seconds. Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. Check for internet connection. The above are just a few item you should try. Good luck glamredhel! Post your findings. Mike
first install some good antivirus ... in some files by the name desktop.ini there will be virus called trojan ... the trojan virus behavior is like that only whichever memory device you insert into your PC just like pen drive,ipod, mobile,memory card etc all the memory device will be affected by this virus so there will be a named desktop.ini ..... inside the system also it keeps multiplying whenever you execute a task inside which that file is present...if you burn any cd or dvd also you will get this file but it will be most probably hidden in both hard disk & in all other memory devices.... this is the behavior of trojan ...
so better you install one good antivirus & let the antivirus detect it & delete them all .... if possible try giving the search with that filename for all of your hard disk drives & if it searches then delete them all ...(but it will not detect all the files in the hard disk) so it is better to install the antivirus only ...
once you delete all the files there will no problems like slow down of your operating systems etc ....
any doubts you can reply me i am always here to assist you thank you bye rate my solution as per your satisfaction
