Repeating Trojan on boot up.

  Dave21 20:12 24 Jan 2007

I seem to have inherited a Trojan. Even running AVG Spyware and AVG Free Edition and deleting/vaulting it appears to have no effect on the next boot up. The file that AVG spyware detects is called The effect is to request access on booting up via Zone Alarm to a 9129837.exe which I deny. From that point on the Dial Up Connection box appears asking if I want to connect to the internet and will repeatedly do so. When I do connect to the internet, it appears to connect to my usual default Tiscali Broadband connection. But on disconnecting it will randomly connect again.
Any help to get rid of this thing much appreciated.
PS Is there any danger of rogue dialling to another net connection via Broadband- or is only a dial-up complaint?

hiding in your restore files.

switch off system restore
run AVG and delete
re boot PC it should now be gone
switch system restore back on.

Thanks Fruit Bat- dumb question but how do I switch off system restore?

Right click on My computer>properties>system restore click on Turn off system restore, reboot into safe mode, do your AV checks and then reboot, if fixed go back to turn on sys restore
