Re: I got a Trojan
Avast did not remove the virus. I was pretty sure it was going to, because of the scan on boot feature.
So, after wasting my time with anti-virus scans, I decided to do a full system restore/ reformat. Worked like a charm. This time, instead of using Vista Premium, which was originally installed on the PC, I used an Ultimate upgrade disk I had, so now I'm running Vista Ultimate, which is awesome.
So, this has pretty much been solved. I plan on installing these programs in the near future. AVG, Avast, Spybot, Ad-Aware and HijackThis. Any opinions on that security suite? AVG will only be for general scans, Avast as the main/ resident scanner, Ad-Aware and Spybot for what else but spyware and adware scans, and HijackThis as a last resort.
One thing I hate about full restores... Installing the updates and drivers are a total pain in the ass.
