    Go to Control Panel > System Properties > Advanced and turn of XP's restore function (just check where exactly restore is please, I don't use XP & I'm in nix at the mo) > boot to safe mode, scan and delete. Re-boot and all should be fine. Go to Symantics website and see if they have any further instruction for this particular beastie to make sure you've got it all.

    Cheers Murray P

    i disabled system resotore a long time ago, so it isnt system restore thats keeping the virus, there's also ad-ware/spyware that does the same thing

    Could I make the suggestion that you get a more specialised program for the trojan. Maybe a2 from here the free version which scans only or TDS-3 trial which ranks about hte best.

    The link from johnboy has full removal instructions including how to make the registry changes to prevent it starting up again.
