Please be gentle with my computer ignorance I am a begginer but thanks for the help in getting rid of my trojan virus.....although think now i may have too many anti virus anti malware and firewalls installed! was bricking it in case all my bank details etc was really bin read. :huh:

Hi redmonkeystretford,

Now that my eyes have recovered from reading your post.

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
