I have been battling with this trojan now for 2 days. I currently have Norton 2006 and Sophos, both of which keep detecting infected files of which there are hundreds!

Norton is able to remove most of them but a good number of them appear with 'Unable to repair the file' 'Access to file denied'.

I am googled this and found various suggestions. I have put the laptop in safe mode and run full system scans - again Norton picks up a couple of backdoor bifrose files.

AVG Anti Spyware picked up a trojan file which wasn't named Backdoor bifrose and quarantined it when scanned in safe mode. I had thought this may be the root of the problem but no I am still getting plenty of pop ups telling me about infected files.

I have read lots of articles on altering the registry but I don't even have the files in my registry that it says to delete.
Most of the files infected are in C:/WINDOWS/TEMP/tmp3CD.tmp is one example.

Can someone please help me out here!?

Should I download hijackthis and provide someone with a diagnostic log?
