Am writing from another computer than the one infected. Am afraid to do much with the infected one until this problem is solved. Looked at initial help in START HERE and did/verified the following:

1) ran SPYBOT S & D which is already installed, but was afraid to update via the internet due to existing infection

2) ran AVG scan with most recent updates imported from this computer

3) it seems that SP2 is already installed, but not sure (I'm a novice)

4) rebooted

message continues to appear from AVG every few minutes regarding the following file being infected with the collected.5.l trojan horse:

c:\documents and settings\[user name]\msdirectx.sys

keep deleting it and after a minute or so it comes back

Thanks in advance for your help.

looks like you have some nasty parasites on your system. there is a malware related forum in geeks 2 go. please go there and state your problem.

PS: it is safe to download updates for spybot, ad-aware etc as these programs are good.
