I have a Compaq Presario running Windows XP Home Edition with firewall and AVG complete package. I have even run a spyware program, but nothing is working to remove the Collected.AF trojan! I have even run my computer in safe mode with the system restore turned off, looked for the install.exe file, checked to make sure there weren't hidden files, but still can't find the file. Is there a way to manually remove the trojan from the Run: regedit mode? I don't want to delete files that are important. I have tried to download free scanners, but all of them keep saying download failed. I am on horribly slow dialup.

1. google for panda active scan and see if it will remove it. If 1. doesn't work go here and run the sysclean fe or sys-up.

It might be best if you submit a hijackthis log here.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

If you have a friend who's got internet access and a CD burner download these and run them on your PC (Note: You may need to copy some of these to the infected PC's hdd for them to run. If not try downloading them and see if they get corrupted. The DrWeb cureit is the smallest option at around 4mb.

Try running Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip


DrWeb CureIT

If your good with the command line also try Sophos Command Line scanner

Also try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware
