Hello. I am on a work computer running Windows XP. Yesterday my computer froze up several time for no apparent reason and my Google searches are redirected to spam websites. I use Trend Micro anti SW and ran a system scan with the following results:

Troj.Alureon.iu and

My can log indicates that the viruses were successfully quarantined, but after a reboot my computer showed the same symptoms. I ran another scan today with the same results.

Can anyone help me remove these trojans from my computer? Thanks!

Are you running these scans...with XP's System Restore function active?

I am having the same problem deleting ALUREON. I was able to get rid of some of the other malware that rode in with ALUREON so I no longer have the redirected Google searches at least but I can't figure out what file keeps regenerating the trojan. I'm going to try downloading and running the Malwarebytes AntiMalware, ATF cleaner, and SUPER Antispyware like most of the users here seem to recommend for getting rid of other nasties on their computer.
