We have a Win2k server, and it's contacted the a trojan called, "troj_fakeav"; this we know from our TrendMicro log which tells us it's been located on the server, but it can't get gotten rid of (thanks).

Anyway, the server boots to completion of the Windows splash screen w/ running bar at bottom, then the blue screen appears.  

I need a way to find / remove the trojan without being able to get into Windows.

Thanks.

This is Antivirus 2009 , I believe Combofix can take care of this, you will have to boot into safe mode if you have a problem logging to normal mode.
