What tells you that you have a trojan?

Go ahead and download Hijack This using a computer that has access to the Internet and save it to a portable storage device (USB jump drive, CD, floppy disc, etc. ) and transfer it to the infected computer. Save it, using the above directions, to the specified folder and get a scan with it. Post that log back here by transfering it back to the other computer.
