I have a trojan horse on my computer called Killreg. I have tried to remove it but it keeps coming back. I turned off system restore whikle I was removing it. It hasn't worked. Can anyone tell me anything about this and, of course, how to get rid of it.

Thanks

Went on Symantec online virus definitions. Couldn't find a trojan called killreg, but there was one called killfiles. Maybe they're similar. Anyway, here's Symantec's page:

It says something about system restore in there, but if you've already tried it, then I don't know.

Have you got good Anti-Virus on you PC?

If you have an up-to-date Anti Virus program then start the computer in safe mode and run the scanner.

If you have a Sagem USB modem then this is probably a false positive. I had the indiction of the "Trojan" and I did more harm to my system trying to remove it than a real trojan would do.

I did research it but didn't retain the info, this is one of the links click here

Obviously that should have been, I had the 'indication' of the "Trojan".

I've just downloaded and installed IESpell click here

Thanks everyone for your responses. I appear to have gotten rid of it (if I ever had the thing in the first place, I'm not sure now as I do have a Sagem modem) I found a program called Counter Spy (free evaluation copy, click here ) which seems to have done the job.
