I, too, had the Aurora Trojan. I ran repeated scans and even spent over an hour on the phone with two different techs at Microsoft, who appeared equally as stumped. Nothing they suggested helped; Aurora was popping up several ads at a time.
I finally brought my computer -- a four-year-old Compac Presario laptop -- over to a good friend; a real computer wiz, who suggested that the only sure way to get rid of Aurora was to reinstall my Windows XP operating system.
Fortunately, I still had my installation CD's. First, however, I had to back up everything essential in my Documents, as well as some key operating systems.
We installed the three XP CD's. Then reinstalled Norton Internet Security. Next, I got on line at Microsoft and spent 3-4 hours receiving and installing Windows Updates. This, of course, was very important because the CD's are over four years old.
After that was done, I deframented my computer (as my friend suggested) and ran a full system Norton scan.
When I got back on line, *ta-daaa!* no more Aurora. Of course then I had to transfer all my essential documents and programs back onto my hard drive, which took additional time. Small price to pay, though, for all the aggravation that Aurora was causing.
It's been four days now since I did all this, and not *one* Auroroa pop-up.
Hope this helps someone in the same boat.
