Norton Antivirus detected some trojan horses, and a box won't stop popping up. It says High Risk, and it said that the computer detected a virus, and it was automatically deleted. I don't think they were though. The names of the two trojans are "Trojan.LowZones" and "W32.Acra.B". They are effecting the overall speed of my computer, slowing it down, and even changing the available free space on my Drive C. My computer keeps reporting that I have low disk space, but I know that's not true. I think the virus is spreading, and taking over my computer, and I don't know what to do. I already tried to scan it with Norton, and it didn't detect any infections. I tried various Trojan programs like Ewido Malware, but that didn't help at all. I hope someone can help me because I don't want my computer to be ruined. Any help or tips would be much appreciated, thank you! :whistling:

Hi computerdude1985...

Let's let the malware experts deal with this one.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Start Here.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
