Hi!
I am using a Dell Dimension 1100 with Windows XP SP 2, 1 gig of ram, 500 gig external Seagate, and nothing on the C partition but the XP operating system and with a Wubi install of ubuntu on C drive. I don't use IE but Firefox, and I run full time with all ActiveX disabled. Java I toggle off and on as needed. I've picked up this - TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen Trojan - and none of my installed security programs will remove it - most don't even see it. Security programs are: superantispyware, AVG, malwarebytes, spybot, Micro RUBotted, and A-Squared, and Avira PE Classic - the last being the only one activated for full time protection. MicroTrend RUBotted found this trojan. And help in getting rid of this or should I just live with it? It doesn't seem to be doing anything in the system that I've noticed.
Many thanks and this looks like a great forum!
Todd

Hello there rtoddbensel, welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please try a couple of these free online scanners to see if anything has slipped by your protection:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

If you find that you're infected (or the scan doesn't complete or closes unexpectedly), post in the Am I Infected forum located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

regards,
The weatherman

Hi!
Thanks - that was truly helpful. Panda did the trick and cleaned in right up. It doesn't seem to have done anything to my system. Thanks for posting so many options also.
Todd
