[font="Georgia"][/font} I'm getting error codes at start up and missing this, which is for another topic but I started cleaning my media center up and my winhlp32.exe file has a question mark on it. I know that means somethings not right. I forumed it and tried run>config> and didn't see what they said to look for (the trojan name-path?) I'm afraid to just delete it because I just had to re-install my xp games and dont wnat to do unreversable damage to my os. I opened the winhlp32.exe folder and inside was help files. However, the last 6 files listed were out of order (alphbetically) and each one has a small blue ball (circle) with a white question mark inside it. Those files are listed as:
cmmgr32.hlp
edit.hlp
net.hlp
pintlpad.hlp
pintlpae.hlp
winhelp.hlp

I ran malwarebytes and spyware doctor and its still there, can anyone fill in the blanks for me. Also, my laptop doesn't run like its infected.not sure what that is?

That indicates that they are Help files, which is what .hlp is
