I seem to be infected with some sort of trojan. I got rid of it by following some of the steps on the site. I booted up the computer in safe mode and found the winvi program which was causing it according to my Norton, but the one thing I have not been able to get rid of is the fact that now my taskbar has no icons and is completely dark blue. It's the weirdest thing. It doesn't appear to be hurting anything, and Norton can't find anything wrong with my computer now. Ad-aware also says my system is clean. It could be that when I was trying stuff to get rid of it, I deleted something that I shouldn't have. I'm not sure, or it could be that there's a small piece of the trojan that I didn't delete.

I have Windows XP. I have a screenshot, but I'm not sure how to upload it on here so if you could tell me how, I can show it to you. Thanks!

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
