Hi all. New here. A trojan got installed on my pc and Webroot Spy Sweeper seems to get rid of it but it keeps coming back. I'm at work now so i don't have the trojan name but is there a good program that eliminates all, or almost all trojans?

Did Spy Sweeper provide a specific file name associated with this malware threat and if so, where is it located (full file path) at on your system?
