Then my virus prog. popped up telling me that I had a trojen called TROJ_ ALEMOD.C. It said that it was located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\wininet.dll.
I have been trying since Saturday night to remove all of this stuff...it causes applications to be sluggish or sometimes not open at all.
In safe mode I ran Hijack this, ad aware and spybot s&d. I also ran my AV and it showed no viruses. So having run all that and doing some housekeeping (ad aware and spy bot found a lot of stuff...and I run them both once a week as a regular rule) I rebooted in regular mode just to discover that everything was still there. PS Guard was still there, the AV was popping up to box telling me that the trojan was still there.
BTW...I did run my AV in regular mode and it did find the trojan...once it said that it removed it and after it kept popping up and I tried again it said that it could not remove it. I also made sure that my AV was up to date.
I'm stumped on this one and would appreciate any help I can get.
I am running windows xp btw. I also have a fire wall (always on) and I have a cable modem going through a router.
