Hi All

I seem to have got one of those backdoor/trapdoor things,you know-somebody has hacked you and is able to get into everything in your computer.
This has renamed my administrator account WILFRED/(my ac name)etc.. and has altered.I have tried creating a new administrator account to open my IE browser but "it" wont let me,I have to use WILFRED's,so he is probably watching me right now.
I know that it is gonig to take a fully reformat to get it out but he is already in my ip configuration so what is to stop 'im coming straight back in again as soon as I go online.

Any help much appreciated.
ps I do have firewall+antivirus(zonelabs+grisoft)

Regards

well to stop it happening download or buy and install a firewall
that will tell you what connections you have on all ports.

Zonelab to lock the computer down, so that no inbound connections will be permitted. Then you can set about removing the trojan. Have you run a detailed scan with AVG?
