Add or Remove Function

Every time I try to access the Add or Remove Programme from my Control Panel, my PC automatically shuts down. Anyone else experienced a similar problem? Please help!

I ran the Trend Micro on-line scan, as suggested by woodchip. Quite a few malware programmes cleared up, but Trend Micro was unable to remove troj_im.ab Any idease anyone?

system file check wouldn't hurt if you have XP too
Start Menu/Run, type `sfc /scannow`, have your XP CD handy. more info click here

I ran a-squared but it did not pick up the trojan

You could try turning off System Restore/Reboot/Turn System Restore back on.
Not always a cure,but may help

Hope this helps

Just to add,you will lose any availble restore points if you turn off SR

Did Trend Micro tell you where troj_im.ab is (i.e. the folder) or what the filename was?
