If you do have malware your first step is to try and identify it before bringing it (here) to an expert.

You can download malwarebytes (free) and run it in safe mode to start the process.

Hi,

Please follow ZigZag's advice - download, install, update and run Malwarebytes, then post the results log file here.

malware isnt that simple. You dont just find the file, delete the file, done.

It takes good applications, used by knowledgeable people within a planned disinfection.

Why do you think you have that trojan? How about some further information?

Start with malwarebytes, then there are more powerful (and yes dangerous) applications to rid your system of malware.

Just in case you aren't familiar with Malwarebytes you can download it from CNET. Use the large gray button on the left that says Download Now (9MB).

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

Once downloaded, update the data base signatures. Then I'd suggest running a full scan since you're already pretty sure you have malware on the machine.

What Security software are you using?
{Presumably you did a scan that identified this trojan.}

I would suggest you download & run SuperAntiSpyware free..
Update it immediately & run a full scan in Safe Mode.
Post the log here.

Other options for programs you can use are:

Malicious Software Removal Tool | Protect Your Computer

Microsoft Safety Scanner - Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses Free

And if it's particularly stubborn, try this:

Norton Rescue Tools

Because Norton Power Eraser uses aggressive methods to detect threats, there is a risk that it can select some legitimate programs for removal. You should use this tool very carefully.
