lots of people suggest a², wait a while and someone will surely provide a link

if not, click here download and run a scan of all disks/partitions (this is a demo and will not remove the trojans, just tell you where they are)

Thanks stalion have tried e-scan nothing. The thing is I keep thinking I have got rid of this & then when I go to my internet bank I sweep before going there all clear & then when I close account & sweep again this trojan shows up.

Have you tried scanning with Spybot S&D click here and Ad-Aware click here

Thanks Lionheart have tried both of these thought I had got rid of trojan but it has come up again.

you will probably have to do a hijack this log if you can not get rid of it

Hi Tonyheslop,

It's possible the trojan occupies a temporary internet file when it attacks your machine. Perhaps one of those Internet Trace Eliminators like Steganos Internet Trace Destructor, free on Oct 04 PC Advisor cover disc, or Evidence Eliminator, contact their site, would get rid of it because they destroy all temp files etc.

Computeractive has a lot of free downloads from their site concerning prevention and destruction of nasties, it might be as well to have a look. Good luck.
