Wow, let's see... I have run Adaware about 25 times, Spybot S&D about 25 times, the bleepingcomputer.com instructions at least 10 times, in normal mode and in safe mode numerous times. I have searched the file and folders for two days for traces of the guilty parties (.exe's and dll's mentioned in the removal tools), run some automatic removal tools, tried the Panda site a few times, run Hijack this every time I started the computer (many, many times). I probably have almost the cleanest computer on the planet here except that every time I start up I get a registry entry (HKEY_USERS/Software/trustln...). I thought i at least knew how to turn the damn thing on but now I am wondering. I see that this problem has been solved here before but the solution was left out of the thread. Can anyone give me any help here??? It seems to repopulate the Registry Key on start up (rather than on internet connection or when I open IE)... any direction would be greatly appreciated...

Please try the following :

START RUN type services.msc go to start up and see whether there are any items like the above in that list. If so untick save and reboot.

Rogue Remover may remove the leftovers of Trust Cleaner. Trust Cleaner is in their database.

I would also use the two programs below to see what else is lurking on your computer.

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

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Thanks guys. It looks like your suggestions have done the trick. Bitdefender.com found 27 iterations of the trustcleaner trojan virus files and the computer seems to be fat and happy now. I am impressed and hope I can return the favor some time... Ron
