win32:tojan-gen virus again!

  Elvenator 10:38 04 May 2005


I have aquired another trojan virus, despite having avast, spybot and a2 virus software.
I have windows xp. Service pack 2 of course.
I did have norton antivirus but the virus definitions were not updating under any circumstances so I uninstalled and started using Avast on the recommendation of a pc advisor poster.
I had a tojan horse virus last year and had to completely re-install my pc.
I really would like to avoid doing that this time.
Any suggestions as how to get rid of this blasted thing?
I'm extremely fed up!
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, I'm using stinger to scan now.
This virus appears to have affected me being able to send and receive emails in outlook express. This just happened in the last 2 days.
Do you think this software will do the trick? I really hope it works.

You need to turn off system restore, scan and then turn it back on.
