I have this nasty trojan having trouble removing it. Sophos identifies it as Troj/Spabot-B but I am unable to find any other aliases for the trojan. My AVG is fully updated but has not caught it (have scanned twice in normal and safe mode). In addition, I have also ran Ad-Ware SE, HiJack This, About::Buster, CWShredder, and Microsoft AntiSpy. Nothing has been able to kill this worm which has turned my PC into a SPAM relay center.

Does anyone know any aliases for this trojan or removal tools I can run since my AVG is not catching it? I am going to try TD-3 tonight but am not very confident it will find it or remove it. I have already run a trojan scanner (I cannot remember the name) and it came up clean.

I guess the link
wasn't a big help, because you already mentioned it.

If the trial version of TD-3 or TrojanHunter, didn't solve the problem,
you can try "A2 Free", which is mainly an Anti-Trojan scanner.
Download "A2 Free" from this link
Update A2 and run A2.

If that doesn't help, I suggest you read the FAQ (on top) and follow the instructions in order to get professional help from the qualified helpers at SWI.
Simplicity is always brilliant.
