Hi - am trying to find out how exactly the Recycler trojan affects other XP programs, if at all; evidence of it was returned by a defragmentation 2 days ago, and someone who's been assisting me on another site board with an inability to download/upload/save/attach in Firefox as well as increase C drive space, forwarded a link to WinDirStat, which is a European-based scanning system that determines how much space is allocated to various types of functions - it also has the ability to delete such processes and indeed positively identified the trojan as having been acquired May 17th of this year, but before I attempt to get rid of Recycler, wanted to first find out if there's anything it might've typically attached itself to otherwise which, if lost with the deletion, would cause further problems - he's not sure.....one last note: haven't been able to get full access to anything in Safe Mode for well over a year now; I've had the 'Open With' dialogue box come up and still no idea how that will be rectified; some sense it may just be a question of false associations that need to be corrected but I just don't don't have the financial means at present to do so.....thanks; any assistance lent would be greatly appreciated.
