    If you can't do it with any antispyware, then restart the comp in safe mode and delete the virus file ..be careful not to delete system files instead...

    ^Many trojans can still start themselves even after deleting them from safe mode.

    1. Find out where the Trojan resides.
    2. Delete it from safe mode.
    3. Create a new file of the exact name of the trojan in the safe mode itself at same location.
    4. Make it read-only.
    5. This way if the trojan tries to start on normal boot up .. its denied permission coz file(harmless) already exists.

    enjoy.

    Use Avg Anti-Virus and Spyware its FREE for Personal use. Need to purchase for Commercial use. Hopefully this should fix your problem. I never had problem also use firefox instead of IE you would be less prone to malware, spyware and viruses.

    go to the site http://free.grisoft.com to get the free AVG software and its update that is enough for virus protection of any type and does not reduce comp's performance

    that's bcoz the trojan places a dll file in system files which again generates the exe. to clean them properly, u need to delete both the exe and the dll file....
