(but I don't have the knowledge of how you would use it to get rid of a trojan)

trying to find this in Dos will I fear become a major task why not add a good virus checker and run a scan.

I use AVG myself but there are many more listed in Forums,

Dont forget if you find one and remove it you need to turn off system restore, ( loseing all saved points ), run your scan then turn on restore again

Windows XP doesn't use DOS so you cannot reboot to a DOS prompt as with Windows 9x.

You can boot to "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" from the Boot Menu (tap "F8" immediately after powering on) or, provided XP is installed in a FAT32 partition, boot with a Windows 98 "boot floppy". It won't be able to access an NTFS partition though.
