I have trend micro and ad ware se and spyware bot. I scan pretty regularly but i am now all of a sudden getting pop ups and recieving message from trend micro about PE_TRATS.A, its a virus or Trojan i think not sure. I'm not sure how to remove it and it is messing with some .exe files. I need to direction and help. Trend didn't really have a solution, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to BC :flowers:

I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.

Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.

Can you be more specific? Exactly what do the error messages say?
