It appears that I have a registry file that has been infected with a trojan horse. As a result, Norton Symantic Quarantined it and now my internet does not work properly.
Upon windows startup I get the error message: LoadLibrary ("C:\Documents and Settings\tammy yax\ localsettings\ApplicationData\XDNsoft\aqReporter.dll") failed- the specified module could not be found.
Everytime I open any program that uses the internet the program doesn't work at all or is extremely laggy. I've tried researching the problem online, but cannot find any real information on this issues.
Unfortunately, it seems my computer needs this quarantined file in order to run properly. Apparently it's a RegSVR32 file.
Norton gives the option to take the file out of quarantine, but I am reluctant to do so with a trojan on it. My operating system is Windows XP. Before this file was quarantined I didn't notice any issues with my computer other than norton blocking serveral trojan attacks within the same 2 day period.
I've run a full system antivirus scan with Norton, and even tried system restore. Don't know what else to try. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Not sure if it helps, but below is the Norton Quarantine log:
