Got the following message a few days ago.  Virus or unwanted program 'TR/ATRAPS.Gen [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\WINFS\SERVICE.EXE. I deleted the file, but it seems to still be coming back and when I booted up tonight I got the blue screen of death and had to restore XP.  I'm using Avira Anti-Virus Personal and it is up to date.  I also ran a scan with Systems Suite and it found nothing.

I have  strange feeling that the beast is still there. How do I get rid of it for good.

I also saw that I may be causing my own problem since there is also a version out there that causes false positives.  Not sure what to do.

Hi cajungene,

Try running these, here's a link:

I would recommend running these in Normal Mode if you can, and in Safe Mode.

I would suggest that you run Kaspersky Online scanner based at: http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/virusscanner . This will tell us of what is present in your system but will not remove any infections.

Ran a series of tools recommended and none detected the virus.  Guess that it is gone for now.  Still kind of wary.  But we will see.  Thanks for the tips
