I downloaded a file called htmlballer which was supposed to be for converting webpages into executables since It didnt work I deleted it and then ran A virus scan, It said I have downloaded downloader.trojan from protoexe.dat which said was connected with html baller. since norton couldnt delete it because It was from an unsupported file (which is bullbleep if you ask me, I didnt pay 60 dollars for this) I tried to find it in temporary internet files where it said it was and then I couldnt seem to find tempororary internet files. i might bring it to best buy but I want to try it first.

Hi brentthing, try the programs in the links below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

The trojan is classified as a Backdoor Trojan. Very dangerous! It can harvest all personal data from your computer. Credit card info, banking passwords, Ebay info, Paypal info,etc.
It is also capable of downloading other trojans.
As a precaution I would not use the computer until cleaned of the malware. You should also change all passwords after the computer is cleaned and monitor all financial interests.
