Re:Found out I have the trojan Reg/Seeker.......
Here's McAfee's write up about that virus:
The infected files appear to be in your System Restore section. But because "Reg/Seeker" can hide elsewhere, please follow the instructions below:
First, temporarily disable System Restore using these instructions:
To disable Windows Me System Restore:
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click the System icon. The System Properties dialog box appears.
NOTE: If the System icon is not visible, click "View all Control Panel options" to display it.
3. Click the Performance tab, and then click File System.
4. Click the Troubleshooting tab, and then check Disable System Restore.
Next, restart the computer into "Safe Mode" using these instructions:
Restart the computer, pressing the F8 key once per second, till it loads a selection screen. Use the up and down arrows to select "Safe Mode", press enter, and the computer will load into a safe mode. It looks like a normal screen but with Safe Mode in each of the four corners. When youre done, restart the machine and it will boot normally.
AFter that, run a full system scan using your new Virus Scanner. Delete all infected file found. If it comes up negative, then reverse the procedures above to "re-enable" System Restore and restart your computer.
Hope this helps.
