    Mach what do you think about the Earthlink stuff? Do you have to be a client to use it?

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    You can if you wish go thru the steps to remove that Trojan, but I don't think you'll find it there. It never harms to look tho.

    The location is c:\winnt\system32\msdtc\driver\msdtc.xlSO (or is it .xISO)

    Where was it detected Convict?

    One thing you could try is Hijackthis a wappy little program which checks what is connected to your browser. If you see anything dubious remove it, if your unsure if it is dubious post it here and others can compare theirs with yours.

    NOTE : You have to close down any browser windows to clear the attachments.

    I d/l those files Mach. AVG is saying that an old QBASIC program I wrote years ago has W97M/Melissa virus. I opened the file in Wordpad and it is only QBASIC text. How can it be infected????

    PS Thanks for the info Mach.

    EDIT: Well it fixed that .bas file - how could there be a problem with it I don't know...

    I got 5 infected files healed or deleted so thanks heaps Mach. 1 file still infected but that's still a lot better than before. Bloody NAV seems useless.


    EDIT: MsDTC.xISO is detected but AVG can't get rid of it. I think maybe it is a windows driver but does anyone know how to get rid of it? It's result/infection is called irc/backdoor.flood. Plz help! Systemic has a page on something that sounds like it (but with flood.e). However NAV didn't pick it up.

    Hence why I use Crazy Browser and Spywareblaster. I run the tools whenever I notice something has got past blaster, normally down to me not updating or sloppy surfing.

    Sloppy having more than one meaning I guess
