    I cant seem to find a trojan virus remover

    does anyone know of any good free virus program that will remove a trojan off of my hard disk? and when my virus scan puts infected files into one single file are they ok to delete or if i delete them will my computer not work depending on what file it is?

    Hi,

    when my virus scan puts infected files into one single file are they ok to delete or if i delete them will my computer not work depending on what file it is?
    Yes, your AV has "quarantined the item, so if your system did really need it, you would soon know

    You can restore stuff from quarantine, but if it is really malware themn you restore the infection as well.

    The feature is really to allow you to recover from false positives that your AV might have wrongly quarantined

    McAfee just released the newest version of this little gem: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

    Give it a shot (free, for select Trojans only).

    By your words spoken alone here is my advice. Reformat your hard drive, install all applications from CD-ROM, install a firewall and then learn how to secure Windows, browsers, e-mail applications, Active X and Java and this is just for starters.
