Is Spy Trooper Legit?

I have recently purchased Spy Trooper and am concerned about its authenticity. My reason is that it keeps finding the same Trojan every time I boot and removing it. This seems fine, however I have not connected to the Internet between boots so has the program really removed the Trojan and if so how does it keep re-appearing? (Apologies to Spy Trooper if I am barking up the wrong tree!)

I have recently purchased a Dell Dimension with XP Media edition as the OS. They bundle their computers with McAfee Security Center. I have a 90 Day trial version and am running all the options;
VirusScan
Firewall
Privacy
Spam Killer

I downloaded Windows Washer and Spy Trooper. Washer runs on command but Spy Trooper runs as a startup program.

Is there a way of finding out if I have created conflicts?

Also I am having issues with the Privacy section of the McAfee Security Centre. I get the message;
An application component is missing. Please reinstall McAfee Privacy Service.
Error Code (7.1.006)
When I re-install it works fine until I opt to turn off the feature then the above error message starts to re-appear.

As I am new to XP having upgraded from 98 I have no experience of the environment I am working in.

I have read CrustyOldBloke's response to Hopsing and am wondering whether something along these lines is what I need to do? Would it help if I posted the appropriate log? If so how do I do this?

Thank you for any advice direction you can provide.
