    Get hijackthis, make a folder C:/HJT and unzip the highjackthis file into it, and run it do a scan.

    And post the log here.

    So, we can see what the prob is.

    You have done all that, they say you have no virus and you still have the trojan? How do you know that?

    one thing missing from the "done" list, did you disable system restore before doing any of the done list.

    A business pc?

    My mistake, format it, sell them a new OS, Charge em triple.


    Sometimes you just have to cut your/there losses and take a different approach, Time is money after all, and it sounds like you have spent a few hours doing work you will have problems charging for, as the machine isn't fixed.


    I take the same approach, everything is fixable and a format is the very last resort.....But deciding when to take the last resort is all down to timing.

    That said, Don't think I have come across any malicious code I wasn't able to remove, Maybe you should send it my way, I'll fix it, charge em quadruple.


    Muhahahaha.

    You should turn off sys restore...
    (for XP its ... control panel>system>system restore tab) and then (I think ME can do the following, I know XP can) clean out your restore files ..
    Go to my computer>right click an go to properties>click on disk cleanup> let that do its thing then there might be a tab with More Options. Click on System Restore Cleanup.
    Then run all your virus scans, reboot, then turn sys restore back on
