Onto the problem. My computer is Windows XP Service pack 3. I have a trojan according to Kaspersky's free scan. One of my files is also supposed to have been infected by it. I believe that it said in the rules not to post scanner results unless asked so am just waiting for instructions. I am starting to believe that there may be more files that are infected, I get paranoid about my comp I really don't know where to start and any help is sincerely appreciated
Not the main issue here but would love these forums if I could get this fixed as well I have two 8-gig flash drive which I use pretty often (not for backup but I keep a lot of media and some programs on it). One of them won't open unless I right click it and click explore so any help on that would also be appreciated.
Here is some extra info that I do not think you need. Just how I believe I got the virus. Not too long ago, my computer came across the virtuamonde virus. I think ComboFix rid me of that, but can't be sure. It stopped coming up on most scans I did but not in a way that I believe that (I use spybot search and destroy for main scanner, but will occasionally use avast's scanner to be safe). I think that virtuamode led to to the downloading of the said trojans. I basically saved this computer from my dad's old office/garage. It had MANY viruses that I thought I had cleaned up but the computer still was very slow and some viruses just wouldn't go away (I think it even had the virtuamonde virus before ) so I got fed up and just uninstalled and reinstalled my computer using that one program on XP where it saves only the necessary stuff to 8 disks and then use them at startup. I'm not a big fan of losing all my data.
Thank you for any help
