Default Picked up a Nasty Trojan what can I do?

sponsored links

Sorry I have been abscent from the forums the last few days. Somehow a Trojan has latched itself on to my comp and siezes control of it every couple of minutes (both online and off). I finally have limited access to another comp but I am desperate for help to get my machine back up and running. I have tried ad-aware 6.0 and it won't detect it, I just picked up Norton Anti-Virus 2003 and it won't pick it up either. Does anyone know of a program that is a good "Trojan Killer" that I could pick up? I'm really in trouble here folks. Thanks

The cleaner at does a decent job and it is free for thirty days.

a little freeware program called winpatrol also helps keep things like that from happening it starts up with windows and if ANY new process tries to run that wasnt running before at start up then it will ask you if you want to allow it to run if you dont it will disable it.

The Cleaner gets my vote for anti-trojan and AVG Pro gets my vote for AV.

Try a free online scan at *********** and see if that finds it and clears it. If you're running 2K or XP (everyone should be by now unless their on *nix), check your services ... should be able to disable it from there.

Yep, any of those should find it. If not Tauscan has never let me down yet:- ***********

Whilst most A/V software will offer some protection against trojans it is very limited at best and you really should be running some form of anti-trojan software alongside your A/V scanner.
