Tech help from SpyHunter(Enigma Software Group) says I have a Trojan residing in the logon part of my system called winlogon/notify & is locked by the system blocking its removal. Skipping to bottom line they say I have to do a system repair from the xp instalation CD to kill the Trojan core then the SpyHunter software can remove the shell.

Laptop did not come with a CD when new. Manual says to use Windows System Restore or Dell PC Restore.

Will these System Restores work with this virus or should I(can I) buy a Windows XP CD from Microsoft just in case.
Thanks

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 THAT forum.
