The Trojan tutorial seemed like just what I needed...I understood it and followed ALL the directions.
Hmmm... so why was the infected filename not showing up in the autoruns list?! I tried for 2 hours to figure this out without any answers or success. I have a Trojan but can't remove it based on these instructions. I should've known it couldn't be so simple. :thumbsup:

Hi, 9020hc :welcome to bc, there are a couple of questions about this issue, first, what program is detecting this Trojan Horse, and secondly, what is it called?
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

Hello there,

Spysweeper w/ Antivirus picked it up during one of my weekly sweeps. It says it found a Troj/AdClick-EE virus, but says nothing about removing it! While spysweeper quarantines cookies, after the virus it says 'Quarantine Fa...' in red. I think this means the quarantine doesn't work for the virus. I've searched the help section and it says nothing about this. Under the name of the virus, it says infected file is c:\programfiles\music_now\inetchk.exe
This was the filename I was looking for in the autoruns list.
So far, my computer is not doing anything strange...yet!

The malware you have is rather new and difficult to remove.
