Since you didn't quote any of the original post (and it is no longer
available on my news server), I have no idea what any of the details of
the problem are. "Zillions of trojan horse programs" isn't very
descriptive. Update your antivirus and do a full system scan in Safe
Mode where the av will be able to delete the trojan. If AVG doesn't get
it, download TrendMicro's Sysclean and do the scan in Safe Mode:
TrendMicro's Sysclean is an extensive antivirus tool which has the
advantage of not needing to be installed. It requires two parts - the
scanning engine and the virus pattern files.
1. Create a new folder on your Desktop or the C: drive named something
useful like "Sysclean".
2. Go here and download the two parts of the program to that folder:
The pattern files will be zipped - extract them with your unzipper (like
WinZip) or if you have XP, you can just open the folder. You need to
put the extracted files in the Sysclean folder you made.
3. Restart your computer in Safe Mode. Get into Safe Mode by repeatedly
tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up to get to the proper
4. Go to the Sysclean folder you made and double-click on sysclean.com.
Start the scan. After the scan is finished, look at the log. You may
need to make a note of where any viruses were found if they were not
able to be removed so you can manually delete them.
