I m back with the darn computer infection. Different computer now.
I normally run Avast and Spybot.
This system was acting funny initially.
A pop would appear reporting a virus, and when closed, would open a webpage offering an anti-virus programme.
In addition, Spybot did not appear in the task bar. Even after I removed and reinstalled it as resident.
I used the instructions from a previous post and from safe mode I ran MAM.
MAM found several trojans and removed some, but MAM reported it the rest would need a reboot to be removed.
I rebooted but missed the boot menu so back into standard XP.
I shut down and rebooted into safe mode and re-ran MAM. It reported 6 or 7 trojans and you must reboot....
I rebooted and it again found 6 or 7.
Do you have a suggestion of what to run as Avast and Spybot don't seem to be effective any more?
