Hello.

My antivirus picked up a Trojan under the name: Win32:Agent-JXT
It also said that there is a virus hidden somewhere in the memory of my computer that it cannot access without damaging. Hmm..
Any advice?

Thanks.

Run a scan with your antivirus program while in safe mode.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Hey.
Thanks.

I ran the program and it picked up the win32 trojan and some adware. I went through the steps with the program for removal.

Is it safe to say the system is clean?

Rescan your computer again in a couple of days with both SAS and your antivirus program.
Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. During installation you will be offered the Yahoo toolbar. Be sure to uncheck if you don't want it.

If no malware is found after rescanning, delete your system restore points because some are infected. If you ever need to use "system restore" in the future they could reinfect your computer unless removed. Instructions (if you need them) are in the link below.
