Yes... Your Trojan is back. We identified it earlier in the topic.

I won't mess with Rootkits, and The Sirefef malware (aka ZeroAccess) can take on many forms. It is considered to be a multi-component family of malware , which means that it can be implemented in a variety of different ways such as a rootkit, virus, or a Trojan horse.

I'm going to have to bow out of help for this. If it was my computer, I would wipe and do a "Clean" installation. Some people think they can 'fix' a rootkit, but I know that you will never be able to trust this computer to be stable again. It's been severely compromised

I'm sorry

Hi Jacee, I truly thank you for all your help in this matter with my system. I wish there would have been some way to fix the problem. So I am taking your advice and have a new friend who is going to take my computer to his shop and wipe everything from my computer and reinstall everything new. Thank you...
