Pinwheel Trojan Virus

By hooknpawn ·
We have a computer that is infected with a virus. When we boot it up we get a message that says Pinwheel Trojan SOCX. Is there anything we can do to eradicate this or is the computer finished?

1. Do you have any anti- virus software. If so ensure you have the latest veriosn, and get it to do a full scan on every file on the PC.

2. If that does not find the problem, contact your virus supplier with the details of what you are getting - they should be abel to advise you.

3. If you don't have anti-virus software then GET SOME NOW.

4. This may not actually be a virus or trojan - I can't find a mention of it on the Vet or Symantec sites. It may simply be a message that someone has put in deliberatley to make you think it has a virus/trojan.

I had offered the same answers as your first three to my co-worker who came to me with this problem. I'm still awaiting his response. I hadn't thought of your fourth and if it turns out to be a chameleon, the points are yours. Thank you for the prompt response.
