Was doing my taxes the other night and before I could finish something infected my computer. great.

Something on my computer called XPDefender keeps popping up telling me I have a trojan but I don't remember installing this program so I don't know if it is legit or not.

I have run McAfee (can't tell you the version as I cannot get it to open) and Housecall from Trendmicro and neither have removed whatever is infecting my computer. I have also restored my computer to 7 days prior on an off chance that would help but it did not.

I started another McAfee scan this morning before I went to work, when I came home for lunch my computer was in safe mode and I cannot get it out of safe mode... never had this happen before.

I am running Windows XP - SP3. To my knowledge there has not been anything installed on my computer in the last month.

I do have a hijackthis log if anyone is interested.

Any help or suggestions is appreciated. I tried to cover everything, but if you need more info let me know.

Thanks for your time...
