Using AVG to heal this virus or put it in a vault or delete it does no good. Running SpybotSD did no good. Its scan identified 141 things wrong but after they were all presumably fixed, the Threat warnings continued plus I was then unable to access the Internet. I had to do a full recovery in Spybot to regain the ability to get back on the Internet. The file d3d8th cannot be deleted from Windows Explorer. I am wary of deleting its locations in the registry. I assume the th stands for trojan horse. Do you think I should delete it in the registry? This file and its registry entries are not present in an identical computer also running xp in my house.
