AOL's Safety and Security program picked up a trojan called "Infostealer". I blocked and deleted the program but it kept on resurfacing as AOL kept on blocking it. I noticed this trojan kept on trying to get me to enable autocomplete. I left the office with this trojan on my mind wondering how I was going to get rid of it.

I googled infostealer and about a zillion variations of it came up. AOL is only detecting it as "InfoStealer" nothing more. I have no trouble finding the variations of this Trojan. I'm just not finding anything on "InfoStealer" alone.

I found a website: http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/pest/pe...px?id=453098577

which shows I guess where it can be found in the registry and what not. Well I looked and cannot for the life of me find anything.

I want this gone from my computer and I feel I've exhausted all of my avenues. Please help.

I would recommend following the Preparation Guide to posting a High Jack This log. If you follow the instuctions in the Preparation Guide faithfully then your computer may be cleaned. However, rarely is a computer infected with only one thing, and it is possible that some of them will not get removed using this method.

If after completing all of the steps in the Preparation Guide you continue to have issues, post a HJT log as instructed in the Preparation Guide.
