Hi, have you disabled System Restore before doing virus checks? This is where the nasties sometimes try to hide.......Good luck.

Download this free 30 day trial of Spy Sweeper and run it from click here. Turn system restore off before scanning, ( don't forget to turn it back on again after clearing you trojan)

Sorry I don't know about System Control in Windows 98, I am not sure that there is one. Download the program I suggested and run it anyway.
