I have McAfee Security Center installed on Windows XP 2 ed. and found nothing, but run XoftSpySE for free and give me infected by Dialer aec trojan.
I run Winpfind35u and have a log result.
Should I copy and paste it in this place for help?

:thumbsup: to BC!

Have you tried removing it with XoftSpySE? If not, run the scan in Safe Mode and then scan using XoftSpySE and remove the Trojan. Once removed, reboot the computer back into normal mode and do another scan just to make sure it is gone.

Also, just some advice from me, I would use SUPERAntiSpyware as a spyware scanner, it is more effective in removing spyqare than most other popular spyware scanners.

XoftSpy is a program that was previously listed as a rogue product on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products List because of concerns with False positives, questionable license terms, and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising, including exploitation of the name "Spybot". It has since been delisted but in my opinion it is not a very effective program compared to others with a proven track record like those mentioned in BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources or one of the other Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products.
