yes, I made sure to do that. Something even weirder is I restarted my computer and nothing has come up now. I am very confused.

If it happens again, please record the path of the Trojan.

Ok it did the same thing this morning, McAfee only.

This morning it showed two things:
I forgot to get the name of the first one, sorry :whistling: but it said it was located in:
c:\programfiles\strCodec

The next one said "trojan name: pauper" and was located in:
c:\System Volume Information\_restore{202550A8-7A33-4BCA-9586-051D-24DDBF8F}\RP10

Should I do a HJT log too? Or do you thin McAfee just got sort of messed up, or what :help:

Thank you for helping again!! :blink:

Hello again

The second one is in the restore point so go through the clearing restore points routine.

Please delete the folder named c:\programfiles\strCodec\ and all the files within that folder.
