Can't remove Trojan

I can't remove Trojan Proxy BK from my computer.
It has been detected and supposedly removed by Spybot, Spyware Doctor and Windows antivirus Beta 1 but after a reboot and new scans it appears to still be present.
Strangely, AVG or Norton hasn't picked it up.
Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have AVG and Norton running together on your pc?
When your pc boots up,press F8 to get into safe mode and run a scan and delete from there.It may be in a start up program.
It may also be in system restore,so turn that off before you run the scan

No I'm not running AVG and Norton at the same time I just tried them both in desparation really.
Thanks for the advice I'll give it a try.

Have you tried turning off System restore before you remove it. I believe that if the Trojan is is embedded in your system restore information It will just reappear every time you reboot unless you turn SR off
