Just a question if i had a trojan on my computer, could it spread to my other computer through the same network and come on to my other computer?

Hello samuel3,

It is a possibility that the infection could spread over the network to other systems through many different ways. Do you know the name of the trojan in question?
Regards,

Alan.

You should tell her that it may have the ability to jump onto another computer on your network and could jump through her MSN contact list to her contacts.

MSN malware can be a problem, she should follow the instructions for HJT just to be safe.

Alan.
