JoAnn, I think it's a good idea to boot to safe mode with networking by pressing F8 repeatedly when your system starts up and then select that. Then run NOD32 online scan at http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

Eset/NOD32 really is the best and it should eliminate what ever the trojan is up to and won't take so long.

The security experts amongst us may have other ideas but this should at least get you started on sorting the problem out

Thanks Graham, I'm currently doing that for 1 1/2 hr, as I found the link in our security forum. Should I stil do it again in safe mode?
My AVG is still flashing at me.
I think I better buy NOD 32 for Norton
AVG doesnt seem to stop this stuff. Had a problem last week also.

I think let it run then and please don't even think about Norton...it's a terrible resource hog. Maybe Jeff (NT50) can get a good price on NOD32 for you :yesnod:

And

AVG
AVAST
Norton
McAfee

Are the worst about NOT picking up a trojan horse virus from the web or email. AVG free and AVAST free do not have the online scanning such that of NOD

I have used successfully

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to get rid of that thing. NOD will delete the file but it just regens and comes back or NOD can not delete it.

EDIT: CounterSpy will also get rid of it. You can download a 15 day trial of CounterSpy. CounterSpy is what i now use on my XP and Vista machines. Spysweeper got BLOATED.

But with NOD32 installed it would have never happen

:confused Well I think my machine is going into my tech's shop.
I downloaded NOD32, also the trial, and both times I get a blue stop error screen. Unexpected kernal mode trap, is part of it.
Cant f8 on a restart.
Then I have a big red Warning, Spyware detected on your computer! from Windows warning message. Install a antivirus program.
And I cant get rid of this window.
It like a window with my desktop showing tru it. strange.

I uninstalled AVG to dl the NOD 32. but got the previous message.
I cant restore to a previous day either. So I am screwed.

So now I've reinstalled AVG to have some protection and am running ADaware right now, and its already found 3 trojan threats. which I moved to the vault. Earlier Eset online scanner was clean
It says if you force deletion you could crash, so I didnt remove, is this right?

Edit
Ok the red warning went away with a restart.
Everytime I've restarted this today, i get a white desktop with my icons.
I change it in properties by first going to XP mode, apply then to classic appy, and its good untill I do a restart again.
How to fis this,lol?
