Trojans can attach themselves to other files and can be in more than one place. I have even seen some that have the ability to just move to another place when you try to delete them. I suggest you get the latest software available to rid yourself of the trojan. I have had to manually search the registry and delete suspicious files. Don't do this unless you are absolutely sure what you are deleting!!!

what is the Trojan?
If you have XP or ME, you must turn off "System restore"
MyComputer\Properties\SystemRestore\PutCheckInBox for "Turn Off System Restore".

Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Download, update, and run the following.

Your Antivirus Software

Spybot:

Ad-Aware:
http://tinyurl.com/tek5

Stinger
http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
This item will not update through the program. You have to download the new version.

CWshredder:

Or
http://tinyurl.com/2k642
Look for the file in English CWShredder.exe

StartUpList:

StartUpList is information only. Startup, Registery, and others. You can?t fix anything from within the program.

Hijack This:

Hijack This is useful in that it shows what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it is gone. So be sure. Items you are not sure of do a Google search for them.

Run Your Antivirus again

I have had to boot into safe mode and run these.

Good Luck Lee
