Jeepers, the daughter was using kazaa and now my system is innundated with trojans,AVG keeps alerting me to various trojans,hackarmy,trojandownloader-several varities, when i scan with avg it finds nothing amiss,regcleaner keeps showing "xpsystem" in startup which cannot be deleted,apparantly wmplayer is infected. system restore is turned off . i uninstalled avg and installed a trial of panda av but its in french/spanish and i aint sure what its doing. anyone any ideas ?
thanks for the links,the instructions for xpsystem removal are a bit daunting ,is there an automated way of doing it instead ? got rid of the mediaplayer fingy ok though,crikey this is a pain in the butt,never had a virus attack like this before. loads of the suckers keep popping up all over the place and avg hasnt got a clue.
Thanks for the help everyone,i tried everything suggested (except the tinkering with the registry bit) and bazooka is now reporting all clear. regcleaner shows nothing amiss either. i think maybe it was Panda av which actually caught the sucker but the alert boxes are not in english,i downloaded the english trial but but the programme is about 90% french.
