ARRRRRRgggggg 2 Trojans. Help?

  misters 13:15 06 Nov 2004

Hi I was doin a free on line scan today and it picked up that I had two trojans (trojan swizzor) and (trojan porn dialer).

Good that they wetre picked up but i cant get rid of them, the on line scan said that they are uncleanable.

I have rum my own AV, that didn't pick up anything, I have also run my spyware programs adware, spybot they did pick up spyware but noy what i want to get rid of.

The only thing that was downloaded recently was msg plus by my teenage son, i have uninstalled this but the problem is still there.

Can anyone recommend a way of completely removing these trojans for free, as i have done a google search and it comes up with lots of spyware progs. but most of them are just trial and tell you that you have spyware, which is of no use to me besides i have two already installed on my pc and i dont think i want another one.

Thanx in advance.

These may be spurious detections. Some companies have been known to do this in order to sell you their product. I'm not sayng that this is the case here, but..........

I dont have system retore on this machine as it runs win/98. Any other ways?

I see what your saying, but i have used housecall for months and it has never done anything like this before.

You do have a "System Restore" but it is instigated slightly differently than in XP.

Reboot your system and then press F8. Select Command Prompt and then type scanreg /restore

You can then pick an earlier registry date from a choice of five (more backups can be created in MaxBackUps if you wish).

Here's Jester2K's link to a Scanreg editor:

I used to stick to eight rather than five backups when using 98SE.

Thanx Stuartli for pointing that out, I actually forgot about scanreg/restore.
