Two viruses I just CAN'T get rid of!
Posted on 2005-04-13
My computer has been acting up! Anytime I click on a link in almost any program, it freezes that program for about 20-30 seconds, then either delivers the page, or simply resumes. It also has stopped me from accessing Windows Update, and Search for Files on my PC, and even My Computer.
I am a Windows XP Pro user - I have Sygate Personal Firewall running, as well as the Microsoft firewall now integrated into Windows XP. I also have Norton AntiVirus always running and auto updating. Yet I have managed to contract some viruses. I actually had found that I contracted TEN viruses, but was able to delete eight of them. I was able to do this by using housecall.trendmircro.com.
The two that I can not get rid of are named the following according to trendmicro:
TROJ AGENT.FZ and TROJ DROPPER.BR
Both of these exist in files that are constantly being accessed, so nothing I have tried has resulted in success. They are located in:
Things are BETTER now, but I need to see if anyone out there can help me get rid of these two. I was able to log in under safe mode and get rid of the req.dat file, but upon restarting it reappeared. I normally consider myself pretty security savvy - but I am beginning to second guess THAT.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
