Anyone know what tools I should be using to rid my computer of the WinReanimator and possible Torjan Adware 32 downloader? Everything I try - is actually making my system - worse... of course, now I am blocked from even ctrl-alt-del into task manager...

I'm gettin' a headache...

My brother is a computer guru and can only email me to say that he "loves Norton" well, I had Norton, Zone Alarm and XoftSpy all running and this giant pain in the leg trojan got thru!!!!!!!!!!!!!
