My friend sent me something online, turns out it was some trojan horse virus or something. I've got a good virus protector thing with avast on access scanner, so I terminated the connection, then the little thing that said it was infected popped up again and I aborted the conneciton again. A program for a casino came up and I deleted it and deleted it from my recycle bin to.

So I turn off my computer, restart it, and the thing pops up twice again. My question is, can any of you give me a step by step run through of how to permanently get rid of the trojan horse/see if its still in my computer? I'm worried, please help.

BTW, it says the virus(or 'last infected') is called:

The numbers must be my IP address, I changed it a bit obviously.

OMG it just did it again. HELP.

Update: it says its in my web shield. Should I just delete my web shield and download a new one or something?

Download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5

Ewido should be able to take care of this. The report it generates for removing this includes an entry like:
