Trojan horse Statratpage.EC How do I remove this?

  montydog 23:12 17 Mar 2004

Hi everyone

I've got Startpage.EC in C:\Windows\System32|cpan.dll. I'm running Win XP and AVG, which is up to date. AVG detects it, but will not remove it, as it is a system file. I've shut off system restore, just in case, but have had no luck. Any suggestions as to removal gratefully received.

try nod32(available on free trial), sorry don't have a link, do a google for it.

Try running it in safe mode.

Good move in turnning off system restore.

Sorry just realised it's a trojan not a virus, try a2(free) or trojan hunter(free trial) as well as nod, these are all good programs and are worth the download.
