Question about Computers & Internet
Please indicate which anti-virus detected it, and make sure it
is not a false positive, such as those often reported by AVG
Also which OS are you using?
1) Reboot your computer into ugly mode (i.e. safe mode) by
pressing F8 after the POST but before the boot process.
2) Run the anti-virus again and see if it will remove the trojan.
3) Always scan your PC with multiple products, since no
antivirus on the market will detect or remove all viruses.
Be extremely careful about ROGUE anti-malware scanners
on the internet, which are themselves malware or trojans,
designed to give you false positives and milk you for money.
Check every product against reviews by reputable sources
like PC magazines, Wikipedia, Download dot com, Tucows
and user forums.
Finally you can often locate malware files within the system32
and pre-fetch directories. They often use mutating names and
have a recent creation date. Typically 50 to 100K. Check the
copyrigtht notices in properties, google the file names.
Also any executables within temporary folders, download folders
or under the user profiles tree (documents and settings) are
extremely (!!!) suspect.
