First of, hello, I'm completely new both to hear and to the computer forums in general...I'm usually a car-forums kinda person......Soooo, hey, if anyone needs car advise, let me know, lol.

Anyway, I don't usually have any virus or spyware programs on my computer but recently became concerned about that so I downloaded Adaware, AVG, and ewido.

Ran a scan through AVG and it found 50 instances of a "generic.dzd" trojan in the download folder for my LimeWire P2P program. Apparently they've been there for awhile I just never realized why it was saying I was sharing 50 files when I wasn't. The files themselves were completely invisible in the folder and only manifested themselves when I viewed the folder properties in the form of number of files and size of folder.
They weren't "hidden" either. But they were lurking in there somehow. So I ran the AVG software and apparently cleaned all but one of them out, yet the AVG couldn't detect it. So I deleted the whole folder.

I'm now asking: did I completely erradicate my trojan problem and are any additional ones evident based on this HiJackThis report?
