I got a message last night (via Norton, ) to say that it had detected a Trojan AEC Dialer and could not remove it. I did a scan with Spybot, Ad-Aware and a then full scan with Norton itself. All three said there were no problems. Out of interest I downloaded a trial version of Xoftspy SE which tells me there is this, that and the next thing including a Trojan but that I now need to register the software and pay for it, in order remove the beasties. The computer is ticking over nicely and showing no ill effects. I was advised to download Superantispyware and use that to deal with the problem. I downloaded Superantispyware and a scan detected some Tracking Cookies and a few Hotbar/Popup things which I then removed. It did not pick up on the Trojan however. When I ran the scan on XoftspySE trial version again, it says it detected Dialer AEC Trojan x 10, Zango Toolbar X 4 and Hotbar X 9. What I don't follow is why Norton detected it, warned me but did not pick it up again when I did a scan Can anyone advise, please? I am using Windows XP Home Version.
