Question about Dell INSPIRON 1300 Celeron 1.4GHZ,256MB DDR,CDRW/DVD,WIFI,40GB,15" WIDE LCD,WINDOWS XP (617977104046) PC Notebook
These advertisement trojans are particularly hard to get rid of. The reason is that when one opens it hides several others that are inactive and usually undetectable. These lay dormant until they notice that the others are not working any longer, then one or two will open and hide more, but they will not all open. The reason that they are so hard to contain is that they lie dormant in all types of files, even picture files. When you think you've gotten rid of them, about a week or so later it starts all over again. Unfortunately,and I know you don't want to hear this, the only sure way to get rid of this is to wipe the hard drive and start fresh. Keeping any old files from your hard drive may reinfect the new system.
