Hi

Sorry to be blunt, but invest in a professional antivirus and firewall solution, and keep your copy of Windows updated, and you won't have to worry about these pests in the future.

However, having said that, if you visit www.symantec.com or www.sophos.com they have many free removal tools available for download that will automatically remove malware. Also, if there is not a removal tool, there are often instructions on how to remove these blighters manually.

Good luck

Do you have the name of the Trojan, if so do a search on any of the security Company web sites for the right tool.

Norton, CA, or Trend Micro should all have the tool you may require. AVG has even helped me remove a Trojan before you could also use their software AVG 7.0

Good Luck

I've had pretty good success with a product called "A Squared". The personal version is free and can be downloaded at:

Hi

Also, get a professional antivirus and firewall program(s), on the computer, and run Windows Update regularly. You won't have to worry about these pests in the future if you do.

Good luck

google for the name of the trojan you believe is on your disk. you will find a definition of that particular malware if you look hard enough. Next, confirm that it is the right malware by comparing the registry keys in the definition to your registry. If it says you are going to have a key named screwytrojan in HKLM/software/microsoft/givememoney and you have that key in your registry you are on the right track. confirm with more than one key. Also, make sure the alert is not a spoof. A spoof may try to get you to remove registry keys and executables for legitimate and even critical windows functions leaving your platform unrecoverable. Once you have identified the malware and verified its existance, you can either google until you find a removal tool for that virus (try symantec.com for removal tools)or manually remove all of the keys and executables associated with that malware. Some of the executables may have replaced necesary executables so you may have to find the original file to replace the old one. Finally, if you are denied access for removing a file, boot to safe mode to perform the removal.
