Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I ran spyware doctor on my PC ( Windows Home XP ) and it stated it found trojan.proxy.BK in my registry at various files on HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\FWCFG
I do not have the full version of Spyware Doctor which claims it can remove the trojan.

None of the other anti malware things on my PC can even find the trojan ie, Ad Aware, A Squared, and my Madesafe ( Solarsoft ? ) AVS / Norman firewall.

Is this a ruse by Spyware Doctor to sell me it's program or is there another way to remove trojan.proxy.BK from the registry ?

The reason I ran Spyware Doctor, in the first place, is because I received a tip from the Norman Firewall that a trojan using " Black Stealth " techniques was trying to make connections. This tip strangely only appears when I click on help on the Norman Firewall taskbar icon. The Madesafe AVS supplied as a package with the Firewall cannot find any problems when it scans the hard disc. An E - Mail reply from Madesafe was more re assuring than practical, claiming that the AVS would destroy the trojan if ever it tried to do anything. mmmmm maybe

Any advice on what may be 2 seperate issues welcomed.

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
If there's anything on your system that doesn't belong, the HJT Team will find it, and help you remove it.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
