Subject: RE: Tech: Antivirus Plus Infection
I had a very similar problem on a computer where I do volunteer work. It gets used by a lot of different people, and it's amazing what people click on and what they install just because it's a free download.
I couldn't find a program that would remove the trojan, so I ended up saving the data and restoring Windows XP. It had the side benefit of making the machine act like a brand-new computer.
