How do I get rid of the Trojan:” Https Tidserv Request 2 ” from my computer

My operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 3, I am running Norton 360 Antivirus Software and I am using Internet Explorer 8. Every 5 -6 minutes Norton is telling it has intersected an attempt on my computer. Every 10 minutes, an Antivus8 application activates and tells me that I need to download a program from the internet to clear the virus.  I cannot delete the program, nor can I uninstall it. I cannot find in the Programs Folder, where it has loaded itself onto the hard-drive so I assume it is in the Registry Files or Rootkit. I do have the programs SequoiaView and Spacemonger loaded onto the computer, I have also tried deleting the AV8 Folder from Programs, using Chaos Shredder, but this doesn’t work either. I have tried running Registry Crawler and Registry Healer and although it finds 2 incorrect or invalid entries, it does not find the Trojan. Is it possible to REMOVE the Trojan with having to Reformat the disk....?  aussiecuttlefish

You could also try MalwareBytes first if you wish, it detects and removes most rogues.
