My computer has been acting funny. Shutting off by itself, changing pages etc. so I ran AVG Anti Virus on it tonight and here are the results. I of course understand I have a Trojan horse but it says I can't clean it because it is embedded and I have no idea what the other 3 "changes" mean. If someone could help me to get my computer back n' running in good shape I would be very grateful. Thank you.

The AVG results:
C://Windows\system32\kernel32.dll Change Changed
C://Windows\system32\user32.dll Change Changed
C://Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe Change Changed
C:\hp\bin\Python-2.2.1.exe\COMPARISONS.HTML Trojan horse PHP/MPack.B Infected, Imbedded object
C:\hp\bin\Python-2.2.1.exe Trojan horse PHP/MPack.B Infected, Archive

I am also running that Winpatrol n' this has been coming up...

Scotty has detected a change in a monitered file:
File Name: HOSTS
Change: c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Allow this change?

Scotty has dectected a new start up program.
Start up program name UNKNOWN
Allow this change?

I have been rejecting both of these. I don't know what they are or if they have something to do with the Trojan too?

The best thing for you to do would be to follow the directions in the Preparation Guide for posting a Hijack This Log.
