Hi.. Thanks for your help on solving my peper trojan problem. I think it worked but have another question. My virus scan has detected a trojan(Exploit-CodeBase.gen and a virus W32/Lirva.htm). The virusScan moved it to my quarantine folder because it said the clean failed and the file isnt cleanable. Any ideas on if i can get rid of these for good? Thanks. By the way, the name of the virus is "jeromesjewelrymarket(1).vir" and "id=pwscoops&opt=hhj&cv=210&uid=8445346(1).Vir <_<

I tried to delete it from the quarantine file but it would not let me. I deleted the whole quarentine file. Was that a smart move?

I think you're okay. Your antivirus software should just recreate the quaratine file next time it needs it.
