Spydoctor discovered this little ** on my laptop.
I have deleted the file ( j7snjal1.exe ) from my machine. Do I need to do anything else? Spydoctor now show the laptop as 'clean'

Hi,
You could do a scan with another antispyware program for a second opinion,

Try SAS Superantispyware FREE version,

thanks for your response.
I have SAS Superantispy, but it did not see the trojan - when it was there ( before Spydoctor found it) so I will check back frequently with Spydoctor, and hope I have done the right thing.
I could, of course pay for the full version of Spydoctor, but £30.00 seems a lot to pay to delete one bug which only it's software has found.

Hi
One thing to remember when removing Viruses or Trojans, is that you need to turn "System Restore" OFF, before you remove those Viruses or Trojans, otherwise it eill come back to haunt you if ever you need to restore your PC back to an earlier time. Once you've removed the Virus/Trojan, then turn "System Restore" back on.

Thank you, I didn't think of that... I didn't do it either. Maybe I should do a restore and run the spyware again??
