I was attacked by a Trojan for the first time in six years last week and printed out all the instructions I needed from Bleeping Computer. I had everything under control and all I had to do was follow the instructions when I thought I had a brainwave. I figured I could run Autoruns.exe and uncheck "Shell" the name the Trojan is listed under under the Logon Tab and then delete. It didn't work and something is still looking for ibm00001.exe the Trojan program. I didn't follow the instructions and tried to reinstall Shell by restoring ibm00001.exe afte rebooting from the Recycle bin where I put it out of harms way. This didn't work so now I cannot go through the correct procedure. Is there a way to fix this so that I can go through the right procedure or execute some other action? I apologise for acting in such a rash fashion and not following the correct protocol. I got a pop up that is almost certainly the Trojan in action twice before I could get to this site having to press ctrl+alt+del to start all over again.

I'm sorry for messing the whole thing up when all I had to do was follow the instructions provided by Bleeping computer.

Have you attempted a system restore to a point prior to your changes?

Hello John,

I want to avoid if at all possible doing something like reformatting my HDD because I'm certain I'll loose stuff I value.
Can I ask you or the forum if I could execute the Trojan by double clicking on ibm00001.exe and then if the Entry "Shell" reappears in the the Logon list using Autoruns.exe I could go through the correct procedure and finally get rid of this Trojan which is exactly what would have happened if I didn't take that naive shortcut?
I can view ibm00001.dll and I'll bet it has the information I need to remove the right stuff from the registry.
