Can someone explain to me how to delete a puper.dll trojan????
My McAfee security program says it can not be deleted because it is write protected. Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hello

Try starting up in Safe Mode and then going to where the file is - if you are unsure then maybe try a Start > Search and enter the file name

To start up in safe mode press F8 when booting up your pc

For more info on starting in safe mode in XP see this ...

If it doesnt work come back and we will try see what else we can do :0
