Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me remove the virus I've gotten on my Windows XP (Home Edition)

I have already run ComboFix but it doesn't appear to have fixed the problem ( I have the log saved on my computer)

I got the virus from the residents network at the University Of Canberra and it's also infiltrated the Uni's computer labs as well

It's a trojan virus which has also affected my use of Nod32 (which I downloaded to try and get rid of it)

Any help would be appreciated

Try downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from http://www.malwarebytes.org/ and Superantispyware from http://www.superantispyware.com/. These are both free programs, do a scan and see what it comes up with.

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Did you notify the University's IT Department? If not, you need to do so.

What program is alerting you to the infection?
Did it provide a specific file name associated with this malware threat(s) and if so, where is it located (full file path) at on your system?
