Running Windows 2000 Prof. (5.00.2195) with Service Pack 4, AOL 9.0 VR with McAfee File Version 1.3.102.0 all on Gateway Business Desktop PCfrom 1999. McAfee indicates that there is infection by Junk_NavQuar, however repeated McAfee scans do not show any invasion. Computer very slow in any website. Can you help to find and remove this Trojan or Worm on my computer??? Thanks in advance.

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

Have your tried running your scans in "Safe Mode"?

Thanks for your answer, quietman7.
No, McAfee did not indicate any file where such Trojan could be located. Tried your suggestion in "Safe Mode". McAfee found 30 investations and fixed them. Unfortunately I could not fiind on the scan would they were.
Tried also HJT.com, they did not show any file to be fixed.
Tried pctoole.com, they indicated 8 minor in Application, 6 in Adware and 2 in Spyware as known. When tried to fix, the "Free" Spyware turned into a "Fee for Fixing" download.
Anyway, hope the McAfee has found at east some of the bothering Virus?tTrojan/Worm in my system. Thanks again for your timely reply.
