McAffee popped up and said I had sploit[1].anr and that it could not delete, quarantine or clean it. I immediately deleted my temporary internet files (where McAffee said it went) and disconnected from the net. I have been unable to find it with multiple manual searchs, McAffee, or AdAware SE. All are up to date. Did system restore. I then bought, updated and ran SpySweeper - no trace. MS Malware Remover - no trace. I can't tell if I have it or not.

1. Did I get a false positive in the first place?
2. Did I get rid of it when I deleted temp. int. files before rebooting?
3. Did system restore get rid of it?
4. Is it still lurking in there?

What exactly does this Trojan do and how can I be sure I don't have it, or, get rid of it??

Hello jackedup and Welcome to Geeks To Go!

* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
