Trojans appeared in an Application Data folder, and i binned them. The have now re-aooeared in C:RECYCLER. Never heard of this folder and cannot find it. AVG can't do anything with these objects.

Any ideas?

Thanks, etc.

Turn system restore off and scan again in safe mode, then delete. Don't forget to turn system restre back on.

You probably need to turn off system restore as these guys lurk in there to reappear after you have deleted them

You may need to run trojan/spyware software inc Spywareblaster, spybot search and destroy and microsoft anti spyware as well as a virus checker

The Recycler folder is used only on NTFS partitions. The Recycler folder contains a Recycle Bin for each user that logs on to the computer, sorted by their security identifier (SID).

Thanks, guys.

Sysrestore is off and I've scanned in safe mode, and also used Stinger and Spybot to no avail. I at work just now, but will try the Trendmicro thing tonight.
