  Nonnyriley 09:48 11 Apr 2003

hi ya, I have three trojans and not sure where I got them from. I've tried avg, "the cleaner" and online scans but only avg finds it but after a scan goes straight to the "test finished" screen and says I still have three viruses on my hard drive.I have xp professional. They in the system32 folder and are:

1. virus identified Worm\Randon
place - C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\WHORE.EXE:\ActiveX.ocx

2. Trojan Horse HideWindow
place - C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\WHORE.EXE:\svchost3.exe

3. Could be infected BAT/Generic
place - C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\WHORE.EXE:\v32Drive.bat

Please help, I don't know what to do!
Also there are 6 svchost.exe in my task manager, is this normal?

The cleaner is rubbish try that. Its free for 30 days.

svchost.exe are windows services and there can be multiple instances running it is quite normal.

By doing a lot of looking around in my windows folders I found that the "whore.exe" is rar self extracting file which contained the three trojans. So I simply deleted the file and thats it, there gone.

you could do worse than try Gladiator A/V free from click here as it targets more trojans than any of the other A/V progs
