Can anybody help me please?

I use the Clamwin virus check on my p.c. and it's informed me of a virus, Trojan.Mybot-5738.

It's in my Windows\system32\TFTP1340 file,i don't have a lot of knowledge about p.c's,just the basic stuff.

Can i delete the file or if not how do i get rid of the virus?


Thanks in anticipation

I'm running XP Home SP2 and that file does not exist on my system anywhere. TFTP.EXE is a genuine Windows file (which I have) but TFTP1340 is most likely a trojan masquerading as a system file to put people off deleting it.
If it was me, I would have no hesitation in deleting it.

you may want to take a trip through the malware forum to make sure that this isn't the only nastie hiding in your system

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK 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) then post a hijackthis log in THE MALWARE FORUM forum.
(Posting HiJack This logs in any other forum other than the malware forum is forbidden. If you post an HJT log in any other forum, it will be removed and it will take you longer to get help, so please make sure you only post HJT logs in the malware forum)

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