Messenger Plus and Dropper Trojan.

Installed and ran AVG on a neighbours' Windows 98. It found two entries for Dropper.Swicer.A trojan, and deleted them.

Back home, a Google search revealed their origin to be Messenger Plus, a program her children had downloaded. But worryingly, there were indications it is not that simple to remove them.

Any previous on this, please?

Thanks, yes I've phoned Sue to scan again. Wondered if it will re-appear on re-boot?

That may be the reason! If they clicked yes, that will have installed the trojans.
