Windows 7: Help! - Any advice on trojans removal ?

On your XP machine ....Go to C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX XXXXXX\Local Settings\Temp\nvvscv.exe <-- delete file if found

download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer -> Anti-malware Tools -> Downloads and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.

Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.

Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.
TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.

TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail. TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.

Sorry, please can you explain what you mean.
(I did put a short one-liner a the top if that's what you mean... In fact I put quite a lot more earlier but this forum software kept killing it and crashing and eventually I got confused because it had accepted some submissions and not others!)

Sorry I am now out of time. I have finally decided to format my windows7 computer and start again.
My WindowsXP laptop remains unformatted however.

Is it okay to keep seeking help on this forum for a WindowsXP machine... or would I be better of bothering folks elsewhere... ?

Cheers

these are ''code'' tags..... [ code ][ /code ] (without the spaces), placing these front & back of the info will encompass the long text in boxes making it easier for the onlooker to keep track of where they are..

in regards to your XP query as its your thread & it originally pertained to w7, just continue the thread with your new query's, maybe someone can help you with it...

that'll be better than trying to start a thread here about XP
