:wave: Hi all, I'm new here and was wondering if you could answer a quick question. About a month ago, my computer became infected with this trojan horse


I ran Norton Antivirus and quarantined all the files that were infected. However, even after that, it came back twice. A few days ago, I downloaded Ace Utilities 2004 and completely cleaned my internet cache. My question is, did deleting the internet cache remove the trojan since that was where it was lurking? I'm unsure because it has already come back twice even though I deleted it each time. I just hope it's gone for sure ;D

Clean the temps and internet history again.
Delete it from Quarantine, and immediately empty the Recycle Bin.
After something like this it is a good idea to purge the Restore Points and start fresh.
To flush the XP System Restore Points:
(Using XP, you must be logged in as Administrator to do this.)

Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter.
When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left.
Check the box labeled Turn Off System Restore.

Reboot. Go back in and turn System Restore ON. A new Restore Point will be created.

I hope this helps. :wave:

There are several reasons that you could be picking this up.

1- There is an actual Trojan in your internet cache

2- You have viewed a webpage that had snippet of Trojan code on it. This does not necessarily mean that you have been infected. I have noticed that several of the logs that have been posted to Spywareinfo.com have set off Norton with an alert to Bloodhound.Exploit.6.
