Ello folks, I was brought to this site via a google search on destroying a couple of known trojans/worms on a friends laptop. The viruses in question are algg.exe and bolivar.exe, my friend didn't have any security at all and consequently attained those viruses. I printed out the manual on the SDFix by Andy Manchesta and gonna try to get rid of these pesky bugga's.

I've tried everything I know to eliminate these viruses through AV's and Spyware programs ony to find they stick in the XP's start up , even tried to eliminate them there also, and through the registry but to no avail so my last ditch effort is the SDFix or dare I say it a total re-instal ( of which I don't wanna do !!! ).
