Now why the hell couldn't Steam themselves tell me that?
Regardless .. no change!
I've discovered and removed 7 trojan files (in an AVI codec directory) of all places! Followed the steps by removing all files from the steam directory (bar the apps dir and the steam executable) .. no change.
Interestingly my AVAST software won't run when attempting to fire up the scanning section and SUPERAntiSpyware.. free edition also crashes on startup. I've also done a check for Vundo .. no vundo apparent.
Spybot Search&Destroy found the trojans but nothing else.
I think it might be time to do "the big format" and start again!! Bugger!
PS: I've just discovered that IE won't run either?? .. WTF is going on?
