1st thing would be to virus check the drive and remove any viruses you find, if it does not remove it try using this one it seems to remove everything, we used to use f-secure or norton 2007 but it wasnt picking up or removing half of the viruses we removed for customers. http://www.kaspersky.com/trials its a 30 day trial so download it, uninstall your virus checker and install that one and it should remove anything. PS make sure the switch on the pen drive is set to unlock so u can make changes on the drive. all the best John

Trojan Horse Removal

A virus is program that has malicious content in it and replicates itself and a Trojan horse is program that will only work if the user executes it. Sometimes, a Trojan horse covers itself as a fake folder while in fact, it's an .exe file.
The good thing about Trojan horse is that it is not that hard to get rid of them. But the bad thing about Trojan horse is that it is a little bit difficult to find them.
Although, it does not corrupt files or delete data stored on your hard disk until you execute it. Once executed, it will allow the hackers to indentify your credit card number, social security number, bank account details or some other private information.
You can delete or remove the hidden Trojan horse with the help of antivirus software. Either, you can also try the manual process to delete it or you can follow these steps:
STEP 1 Open the System Information Utility (msinfo32.exe). You can find the System Information Utility by typing “msinfo32.exe” in ‘Run’. This program lists all the processes running on any Windows system, even those processes that are hidden from the task list. Now open your virus scanner and run the executable or .dll through it.
STEP 2 Open your antivirus software and run a virus scan. If you don't have a antivirus software installed, download AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5. And run a scan using it. After the scanning process is completed, delete the value that was detected from the registry (before doing this step, take a backup of the registry files):
A) Click ‘Start’ > ‘Run’.
B) Type "regedit".
C) Click "OK".
D) Go to the subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServices
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices

E) Now delete any value from the right pane that was detected during the scan process.
F) Exit the Registry Editor.

Torjan remove virus

Reboot your computer if you have a Mac. Do this by holding down the "Shift" key while the computer restarts itself.

Launch an antivirus program that you should have installed on your computer, such as Symantec's Norton or McAfee. Wait for the program's window to appear, then go to "Disk View." Highlight your computer, then select "Scan/Repair" so that the antivirus can detect the Trojan and trash it.

Exit the antivirus program on your Mac. Restart your computer again to ensure that the Trojan has been deleted. Empty the trash can on your computer once it is back up and running.

Disable the System Restore feature if you're a Windows user. Go to "Start" at the bottom of your screen, then right-click the "My Computer" icon to go to "Properties." Check "Turn off System Restore" under the System Restore tab in the "Properties" window, then select "Apply." Confirm that you want to disable System Restore by clicking "Yes" and "OK."

Update your virus definitions in your antivirus program. Open the program, or go to the website, to download the latest definitions so that you can receive the most recent alerts and keep your computer protected.
Scan your files to detect the Trojan file. Follow the instructions in your antivirus program to delete any suspicious files. You may want to write down the path and file name of the Trojan, which is usually found in the "C:\" hard drive. Then, edit your computer's backup registry by choosing "Start," then "Run." Type "regedit" in the window that appears and click "OK."

Search for the registry entry from which the Trojan derived, which may begin with "HKEY" followed by the file path. Delete the registry entry to ensure that the Trojan is removed. Exit the registry entry, and restart your computer so that the changes can take effect.
Hopefully, it may help to remove Trojan virus from your PC.

There is nothing on my SanDisk Cruzer Micro (512 MB) but there is only 191.8 MB free.

When you open up My Computer to view the drives, right click on the Micro drive and format it. This should clear any clusters and free the memory.

Pop ups and trojan horse

You could try installing www.spybot.com although this may not be possible without admin rights (you wont have permission to install the app)

The other thing you could do is boot in safemode (F8 at the start) and see can you install it now.

If its XP you could try do a system restore back to a point when your laptop was working. Then install spybot

Finally you could make a dos virus scan disk from your antivirus ofware and let it scan windows and your drive before the trojan is started.

It can be tricky to remove, but if you tell me the name of the trojan there maybe an application/utilitie to remove that specific virus.

Hope this helps!
