MBAM takes some time for the scan.
If you are certain of your thinking, you can try, but poste back your results.

Ive tried that solution u said but it dnt pin point where the trojon is
I tried looking at the shell file it just says explorer.exe
Cnt see where it is.

Also tried running windows defender on my user account on laptop but as i just go to open it the pc lockup appears.

Cnt get mc afee loaded up either

Matt ;(
The link I provided has an update at the bottom. This is the update information;

"I fixed this by the following:"

As well as starting explorer and regedit at the command line also start msconfig. Select the Startup tab. It can be difficult to spot although it stuck out for me as having an absurd name, there can be more than one entry. I think the best way is to look in the location column for any entry ending with something like a string of random letters/numbers.exe, mine also had a comma with a few letters after it as well to try to confuse me. Also look for any startup item with something similar in the 'Startup Item' column. Unticking these entries and applying should prevent it starting, and the entry should reveal the path to the .exe file which you can find and delete. Be warned you can stop important programs starting up, although they try to confuse you, mine was tagged as being from the IBM corporation!

You can't just delete startup entries from msconfig. You have to use regedit. In regedit I found the offending entries here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Shared Tools \ MSConfig \ startupfolder

but they might also be here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Shared Tools \ MSConfig \ startupreg
