    Trojan found on my system

    Anyone please help!! I bought a program off ebay and found out it was a pirated copy and then my computer has been acting goofy. Yahoo antispy found a trojan yesterday and said it was removed. I found a file and in doing research looks like a spy program. tfsnifs.sys

    I have also had some win 32 errors. How do I get my system back to normal....the program I purchased was Adobe Software suite and I realized when I went to install was pirated when it had crack folders on it with key generators. Any help would be appreciated.

    tfsnifs.sys is part of DLA. IIRC DLA is Drive Letter Access and is used so you can access your burner through the explorer interface to burn files.

    So you probably nuked something that shouldn't be nuked and now your system is complaining about that. Use System Restore to restore your system.

    Did you catch the name of the trojan?

    No it didnt say it just said found a trojan and deleted it. The Win 32 errors were before I deleted the trojan....I'm guessing i need to reformat.

    Maybe, maybe not. What kind of errors are you getting?

    Oh boy. I smell a RAT...

    Do you have a virusscanner? Is it up2date? You might want to scan your PC for virusses.

    You can do an online scan at TrendMicro's site and Panda Activescan
