Default I think I have a Trojan

I have Windows XP. I turned on my computer one day and everything seemed fine until I opened up Internet Explorer. I get a Microsoft Internet Explorer Privacy Alert. It looks legit. Th page tells me to purchase this software that willl protect my privacy stored in my Hardrive. I got a notice from Norton AntiVirus saying their is a Trojan on my Hardrive. I tried to reset my homepage settings to Google and it wont work. My computer works fine though. I reall y want to get rid of this homepage that keeps coming up. can anyone give me some advice? Thank You.


((I also tried a system restore (twice) and various scans but I still have the same rediculous homepage))

res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdocpv.dll/security.htm#subID=PMFV;3248 - this comes up in my address bar

You should get antivirus software to get rid of your trojan. Also, the name of this thread could be taken wrong.
