Trojan Horse

  Alexander P 18:02 24 Feb 2004

My Norton security software tells me the following:

Details: Rule "Default Block Netspy Trojan horse" stealthed (localhost,1024)
Inbound TCP connection
Local address,service is (,1024)
Remote address,service is (localhost,1164)
Process name is "C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE"

Have I been infected by a Trojan Horse - or have the anti-virus software and two firewalls (one on the computer, one on the wireless modem) fended it off?

Should I do anything?

The best way to be sure is to update your A-V and scan your PC.

click here, and download the anti trojan shield 30 day trial, install and run, choose full scan (thats from memory so it might be worded wrong)

it will not remove the trojan's but it will tell you whether you have any and where they are.

if you are running winXP, then any trojan's found would also be in the restore files.

if that is the case, come back and i will explain how to remove JUST the infected file from system restore (instead of losing ALL restore points).

good luck
