Hello, I recently posted here for a virus problem i have of my computer constantly locking up whenever i play games, watch movies, or listen to music, basically anything that uses alot of memory. My anti viruses havent picked up anything, and nor have any of my spyware or adware programs. now, just this morning, (I use AOL) I recieved a notification from AOL saying that my account had been disabled for sending bulk emails on one of my account screen names that hasnt been active for about 4 months. Last night, norton discovered that i recieved a "Trojan.favadd", i ran virus scans from all of my programs, ad-aware, spy bot, and a squared. Nothing came up, I checked the symantec page about this trojan, and checked my registry for the entries listed on the symantec page, and nothing was changed.. although when norton informed me that i had it, it said it couldnt be deleted, repaired, or quarentined. PLEASE HELP ME! I will post as soon as i get back. Thanks.

Run these online virus scanners:

In addition to the security programs you are using, use these:

SpywareBlaster-A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard-A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

If that doesn't help, then:

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
