Unfortunately, I seem to have caught a Trojan virus (Exploit-ByteVerify) from [Edit: URL removed] among various spyware/adware. (Needless to say, DO NOT VISIT THAT WEBSITE.) I failed to remove the Trojan; and albeit the program Ad-Aware SE Personal alleges to have eliminated all spyware/adware on my system, I fear there remains some that have gone undetected, as my system is still a touch sluggish and I still receive an exorbitant amount of pop-ups. Please, can someone lend a hand? Thank you.


Merry Christmas.

Your antivirus software should detect and remove that Trojan. What program do you use? Microsoft also have a patch against this vunerability - have you fully applied all MS security and critical patches?

Have a read of our FAQ - Spyware, adware and viruses - how do I get rid of them? (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/faq.php?faq=pressf1_faqs_security#faq_pressf1_faq_ 16) as well.



Note: I have also removed the URL you posted as a hyperlink in your post to prevent anyone clicking it despite your warning.
