i was online today and i use AIM. i was talking to some people when i got a message from a friend i hadnt talk to in awhile and the message was a link of a christmas card and in order for it to work you had to run it which i did ( my mistake). Now i run Mcfee and its picked up this trojan New Malware.j trojan and it cant be deleted, quarantined and i dont know what to do. If anyone has any information on how i can get rid of this it would be greatly appreciated.
Alright, I have the same trojan, and I've run McAfee VirusScan, System Mechanic Professional 6.0u, and Spybot (4 times) while in safe mode. McAfee and System Mechanic couldn't find anything, Spybot found a few problems, and fixed them. I've been told to install about 6 more anti-spyware and related garbage cleaners, as well as Hijack This... I've also been told to do a Panda ActiveScan. Anything other advice? I'll update once I run more tests and the Panda Scan finishes.
UPDATE: this is the log file Hijack This generated. Help? Anything I should remove?
