I used A-Squared's HijackFree tool, which analysizes different files to root out potentially bad ones. Because sometimes the bad files attach themselves to good files, they use a colored rating system in their analysis. Red indicates files that stand alone and are just plain bad. Green indicates good, uninfected files. Yellow means that there are good files, but that they have bad stuff stuck on them. If you click 'view details' for these 'yellow' files, another window comes up and shows you the good files and the bad ones. The bad ones have little devil-faces beside them, the good ones have smiley faces--unfortunately, they seem to be connected. Right beside the devil-faces, there's a little paragraph that tells me these programs are Trojans (like the PROXY-X trojan that is connected to my Nero CD Burner, disguising itself by calling itself "Nero Checker"). After the fix, all of the 'red' files of the analysis were gone, and even some of the devil-face bad guys in the yellow files. But the yellow files still remain, and in them a few little devil-faces the HijackFree is calling a trojan. Some of them seem pretty serious--PROXY-X Trojan, TACTSLAY.B Trojan, etc. Are these bad files as serious as my HijackFree says they are? If so, are they too intricately linked to my 'good' smiley-face files to get rid of fully, or is there some procedure I could use to get them off? Is there any way to zero-in on these bad boys and take them out without damaging my good programs?
Thanks for considering my problems...please help.
