In my opinion once a trojan has compromised a pc it is usually best to blow it away and re-install. I'm aware of the fact that this isn't a likeable option for most however you aren't going to know for absolutely sure that you have removed all the contents that a trojan has placed on the pc. All of the above tools that are listed may indeed help but they are all based on common and well known trojans that act and work in a similar and known manner. Any trojan that exists can still be manipulated to do extra things the originally intended. This is why there are so many variants of common trojans that not all programs, anti-virus and anti-trojan apps will detect.
Your run time errors could be caused by countless number of reasons. It is possible that the tool you ran could have deleted common .dll's or references to files and active x components that no longer exist or have been changed either by the trojan itself or the repair tool. I would be very impressed if anyone would be able to give you that one piece of advice or instruction that would simply make your run time errors disappear. There is always hope. My suggestion would be to rebuild however and save the time.


Good Luck

thanks for all the links, downloaded hyjacker and spoke w/ relative who rec. adware with pop up blocker, took along time to surf thru all those programs and I think TooKoolKris is right, gotta start from scratch.  Right now its livable, runtime errors down to 2-3 a night but I think i have all the programs and security on my pc that I could have.  Those trojans, what a pain!  Thanks for all of your help and Kris's.  mary
