    Is that what Norton called it ? trojan.exe ? did it say what the filename was ? or was that the filename too ?

    AV's aren't always that good in cleaning up trojans.. grab a trojan scanner/cleaner from here.

    I run these mostly

    PestPatrol
    http://www.safersite.com/PestPatrol/About.asp
    or http://www.pestpatrol.com/PestPatrol/About.asp

    Swat It
    http://swatit.org/download.html

    Tauscan

    The Cleaner

    I did try aČ .. it's free (as well as swatit).. but it's probably not as thorough.

    turn off system restore (if you don't mind losing your restore points).. and run your av and trojan scans in safe mode.


    edit : oh.. about your yahoo webmail.. that is most likely to do with cookies.. is this computer, a shared computer ?

    I would get the Cleaner by Moosoft. They have a 30 day trial version also that works great.
