I have Outerinfo and the WinAntiVirus trojans infecting my computer, and they keep reinstalling after I delete them manually (and after I run Norton antivirus and Ad-Aware removal). What do I do? help

I tried system restore but I think the trojan disabled it since it it failed 5 times I tried it

thanks anyways, I already wiped my system but I'll look at the sites you mentioned. I recently upgraded to comcast cable from verizon DSL and now I'm getting attacked by adware every 10 seconds... >_<
