I did and when it came back on, there was another file infected with the CoreFlood Trojan. So then I turned off the system restore, booted up in safemode and ran VirusScan again. it detected 5 more files that were infected. I got rid of those. So I'm in the clear right? WRONG. I keep getting that damn CoreFlood trojan popping up. What can I do? Please Help!!!
Eee, sounds like a bastard (technical term
) I don't know what you should do about that. However, sombody else does! I looked about and I must thank Mischel Internet Security Forums for this:

(Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore)
Next open ‘Disk cleanup’ selecting the following options, ‘C’ – ‘More Options’ – ‘Clean up system restore’.
(Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Disk Cleanup)
This will remove all the old system restore points but will leave the one you just created.
Do another scan with your AV and hopefully the suspected files will no longer be picked up.
I hope that helps! It sounds right - I feel silly not to have thought of it!
