trojan horse-can`t find it

  nhojnhoj35 12:23 21 Jul 2004

i got badly infected with trojan horses yesterday (15 all together!!)

i got rid of them all by installing and running avg and i also ran a2. both say my system is now clear.

as a 3rd option i ran trendmicro`s online scanner but at the same point in its scan each time i get an avg pop up saying there is a trojan dialler in a particular file and it tells me to run avg but avg isn`t finding it.

if i go to the location theres nothing there. i`ve changed the folder settings to show hidden folders but no joy. i also switched off system restore but its still doing the same thing.

any ideas anyone.

Perhaps AVG is conflicting with Trend's online scanner.Try switching AVG off before running the Trend scan.
If the scan runs ok and gives the all clear you do not have a rogue dialer on the system.

Just remember to swithch AVG back on again ;o)
