Hi,

I seem to have picked up a nasty trojan. I use Firefox 3.5 to browse (though the issue happens with IE too).. For the past several days, while clicking on a google search result (or links on other pages), I get a new firefox window opened with 3 tabs. The first 2 tabs are just urls with weird characters. The 3rd tab is usually pointing to a mozilla folder followed by funny characters: Message: Firefox can't find the file at /C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/<funny characters>

I have VirusScan OnAccess enbled and it constantly seems to be cleaning a file iaStor.sys, which it detects as a trojan. But cannout seem to fix it. I ran MBA-M and it does not detect anything. VirusScan on-demand also detects nothing.

This is my work laptop and am afraid to lose anything. Please help !!

At wits end.

This is my work laptop and I am really worried. Can someone please respond and help ? Do I need to run HJT and post the logs first ?

Worried...
