Hi there :)

I think this is great site you are running here, by the way. Im hoping you can help my problem. I am quite good with computers for my age, but i can't seem to fix my computer. About 4(?)days ago my computer contracted a Trojan. AVG came up and announced that a few threats were detected and it healed them. I ran a scan with AVG and it picked up 4 trojans and about 4000(!!) dropper files with common movie and film names. eg. even almighty, etc. I told AVG to heal these files and no error occured. but then after this my system is increasing slow and i ran a scan with Spybot AND also the Lavasoft antispyware, and while The lavasoft one was scanning, i observed what it scanned, and it scanned through the 4000 movie named files, showing that they are still on my system. i also think the trojans are still there. umm im a little confused between them lol. but i was wondering if you can help me with my laptop and increasing my speed again.

i am running windows XP SP2, and this is a dell inspiron 1300 laptop.
i do have another windows XP installed on this partition but this is not why it is running slowly as it was running slowly before i installed this this morning. i was going to re-do/reformat but i was hoping to fix this OS as i only re-did my system around 5 months ago.

thanks,
Jess
