    Worms/Trojans

    Hello

    I was surfing the web yesterday when I got a message that said your webpage says your PC is infected by Trojans. I didn't take it too seriously at the time, as often you get these messages and it's just some company trying to get you to sign up to their anti-virus software.

    However, as a precaution I ran AntiVir, MSRT and SUPERAntiSpyware. The first two found nothing, but the latter found and removed Trojan agent gen cryptor.

    This morning I tried to download escan. Unfortunately to download that removed SUPERAntiSpyware. Even worse when I rebooted to install escan properly my PC would not start up, so I had to start it up in safe mode and uninstall escan.

    I then reinstalled SUPERAntiSpyware and it found Worm Mytob variant.

    Hopefully SUPERAntiSpyware has removed the Trojan agent and Worm Mytob, but how can I be sure that all worms and Trojans have been removed.

    Any advice would be very very gratefully received.

    Thank you.

    Make sure when you have installed it you update the detection rules via the interface.
