My daughter downloaded onto her pc what she thought was msn plus. Soon after that, our router was disabled. Since then Ive read that it was probably Backdoor.Tixanbot that she downloaded and this nasty sends itself through the msn system. She also uses msn on my pc and Im concerned that tixanbot might have found its way in. Ive ran avg and antivir but they dont find anything. Is tixanbot invisible to these 2 av's or are they sure to find it if its in there.

The virus was disguised as an update to MSN Plus, so they MSNPlus say on their site - if the update was never applied to your machine then you are probably safe, unless the 2 PC's are networked. It's highly unlikely it would have had anything to do with `disabling` your router. It seems to be fairly well known to the anti virus community now so the two programs you mention should pick it up. Finally, Avast click here comes with a `module` that protects Instant Messenger programs.

The 2 pc's were networked at the time. I'll try the online scan as suggested. I still feel that this trojan has something to do with our router problem because from that moment on when her pc tries to connect to the net the router is instantly disabled . Anyway,thanks for the help.
