Hello everyone,
First time poster here. I am running Win xp home and have tried spybot sd, spyware doctor,norton 2005,
Ad-Aware SE personal and visited Windows live safety center.
When I startup loc.exe comes up as an option to run or cancel from c:\Windows\system32
I always have hit cancel.
Windows Live safety center reported 4 Trojans which it could not fix they are:
Trojan clicker win32/small.fj
Trojan Downloader Java/open connection.L
Trojan Java classloader
Trojan Java/classloader.F
I uninstalled all Java in my add remove programs which may or may not be the dumbest thing ever.

Respectfully requesting help
pretty please

:thumbsup: to BC ChickenButter,

What you should do is attempt to clean the system yourself using additional tools that I will indicate below and if that is not successful then you should submit an HJT log to our expert team in the HJT forum. For instructions on submitting a log please read the 'Preparation Guide' before posting to:

What you should try first:

Make sure your Norton 2005 anti-virus is up-to-date and running.
Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following:Reboot your computer in Safe Mode and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode

Then reboot normally, go online and use the online trojan scanner:

Then choose a couple of these free online Anti-Virus scans to run. They do take some time to load and run and in some cases you can only use Internet Explorer, with ActiveX enabled, to access them but they are an excellent support for your existing anti-virus program.

Panda Active Scan online - http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
Internet Explorer only. Requires email address. Requires Active-X components to be installed. Approx 12MB download.

BitDefender online scan - http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Internet Explorer only. Must agree to a EULA. Need to allow installation of an Active X component.Some of the options are not clearly explained.

McAfee online scan - http://www.pcpitstop.com/freescan/

Security Advisor (?) - http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx

Trend Micro Housecall - http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/enterprise...call_launch.php
(European version, supports Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox and Opera)
or http://housecall.antivirus.com/ (IE only)

Kaspersky - http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus
Link to 'Online Scan' at the top rhs of the page. Requires IE and Active-X components.
"does not scan RAM, boot sectors and MBRs, so it cannot detect malicious code located in these areas."

Make a note of what you do so you can tell the HJT guys/gals if you need to go there. If all the scans can run clean and your machine behaves Ok afterwards I'd say you were clean.

See if that helps :flowers:

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.
