Hi thanks for quick reply, i couldnt find too much on google either i could on just generic4 but i didnt really understand what i was looking for,

anyway, i dont know what you mean (sorry bit of a thickie here) but it is a opensearch[1].txt file and is in the local internet folders in my sons docs and setting

is this what you meant (i am still half way through the scan but time was not on my side so i thought i would post sooner rather than later :o) )

AHH!!! changed search, looked for generic4 only, a mass of info found for that, its the xyz bit that is non-specific.

another useful one to try

This is the first trojan I have ever picked up in five years and it seems indestructible. AVG keeps healing it but it just keeps coming back on a restart.

Mine is Generic4.HKT

There are loads of people out there with it but as yet I can't find a permanent cure.

'Save it to your desktop and then double-click to run it.
It will install the program in c:\program files\HijackThis.
Browse to that location with windows explorer, and double click on the HijackThis.exe program to run. Chose the 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'
That will allow you to save the log to the desktop (or some other place) and leave open a notepad file with the HijackThis log in it. '

then psot it as a NEW TOPIC with a brief explanation

you ought also to advise your
son that HIS comp TOO needs a sort out as it too is most likely infected

and I suspect you will now be on holiday too?
