How to get rid of Trojans ?

  paul_allard 08:22 14 Jun 2004

AVG Anti-Virus has detected Revop.C in C:\Windows\System32.exe
and Downloader.Femad.Q in
C:\program files\WindowsMediaPlayer\WMPlayer.tmp
and cannot remove either. What should I do to remove these Trojans without "buggering up" my system ?

Sorry, Windows XP Home

Spybot did not pick up either of the Trojans nor did Avast ! Running AVG Anti-Virus picked them both up again but could not remove them . Any suggestions ?

Try Mcafee avert stinger. That's what I used.

click here, download and install the 30 day trial of anti-trojan shield. the demo will not remove any trojans it finds but will tell you where they are on your system.

if you find they are in the system restore folder, post back and i will explaine how to remove ONLY the infected restore point.

a lot of people tell you to turn off system restore to cleanse your system, but there is no need at this point (turning off system restore means you lose ALL restore points and then have no chance of going back)

Boot in safe mode and run Avast cleaner & Stinger, but I would turn off system restore the blighters hide in there.See what paperman's antitrojan shield comes up with first.
