Earlier today, my AVG Resident Shield stopped a Backdoor.Haxdoor.DP Trojan. It cleaned the file that it was attacking and all seems well. the File that it cleaned was part of my McAfee Firewall. I ran two virus scans in safe mode after the threat was neutralized. I just want to know, is there anything else I should do?

Cleanup your temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. Here is a link to Ccleaner that does a very good job of that.
Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Backdoor.haxdoor is often dropped by other malware. It would be a good idea to use Super Antispyware.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Hey, Thanks!! I ran CCleaner and SUPERAntiSpyware. The SUPERAntiSpyware scan came up clean, not threats or infections. I will run HiJackThis and post the log in the correct forum. Thanks again. I'm thinking that my AVG stopped the trojan from even running, but you can never be too safe.

Sounds good so far.
