Norton found Trojan.Mebroot, on C:\Users\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\uninstall.exe

Every time I quick scan it finds it again, even after the scan is finished and the files are deleted, the files are re-created....

On hijackthis I saw , "O4 - Global Startup: uninstall.exe"
I "fixed" it, but every time I re-scan its there again. I tried all on safe mode as well. I scanned on ESET, Malwarebytes Anti malware, a2squared free, spybot, Spyware Terminator, Norton - nothing found.

I searched information on that subject, and I really don't want to re-format my computer, so I heard that if I still have my Windows XP disk I could use it somehow, the problem is I have Windows XP SP 3, and the disk is Windows XP SP 2.

What is your opinion?

welcome to this forum :thumbsup: Did you yet run the tool that appears to be suggested to you Here---Tool to remove

You could of course post the report from the Malwarebytes program for someone to check for you and proceed from there ?

There was a power-break (that's how you say it in English, yes? problem and electricity stopped working) and my hard drive was damaged - luckily, all the data is safe, so I bought a new one, had to reformat it so I solved the problem =p

Thanks anyway =], and I didn't know if its allowed to mention other computer forums =]
