Hi, can someone help.

I have a dell PC running XP SP3 with McAfee running continuously and a selection of other malware removal software, but I have been got. I had browser hijack affecting IE7 and Firefox and on running Spybot, Malwarebytes, malware doctor, MS onecare live scan, MS security essentials and MS defender I identified several trojans and succesfully removed most.

However, I am stuck with Exploit Java/CVE-2008-5353.BO (also had 5353.KM but apparently removed by reinstalling Java) and Trojan downloader Java/openconnection.AK. I also have port80 open (not showing on Windows firewall)

These only show up with one or two programmes, as all the others did, so its very difficult to know whether they are real and whether the things that I seem to have removed are really gone.

What should I try next?

Also, is there any chance of such malware passing from the infected PC to another clean machine on my internet hub? Obviously if I copy across an infected file it would but can they jump unannounced?

Many thanks
