Hi. New user, so forgive me if I'm going about this incorrectly. However, this seems the right post to be involved in since the problem being described is exactly the problem I am having. My brother's computer has been infected by Personal Antivirus, as well as Trojan.FakeAlert and Trojan.Leften (as reported by Spyware Doctor which, for some reason, runs on my system). I am loathe to purchase Spyware Doctor simply because it requires inputting credit card info on a machine that is known to be infected! Thus, I am pursuing other avenues. If I need to post a new thread, please advise.

thanks.

thank you for responding, however, I have managed to fix the problem. I had the UAC trojan running. I discovered it using RKU, and was able to clean the associated files and dll's with ComboFix.exe, though interestingly, I had to alter the name of ComboFix to Combo-Fix in order for it to run.

thanks again. It was because of this site that I was able, finally, to make some headway against this very tough bug.
