    temp files are stored in various places (e.g internet temp files, windows temp files, install temp files)

    why do you want to know?

    ? wtf your self ? its a great app for xp , its even highly recommended on PCPitstop for the noobs

    If avast has detected the trojan should it not have dealt with it as well?

    Check your virus scanner is up-to-date then run a full scan.

    Download a recommended spyware scanner and run that.

    Make sure you have an up-to-date firewall.

    Consider installing the Firefox browser with noScript installed if you think you may be getting viruses from suspect websites.

    Top advice :thumbsup:

    Dont use IE. Has too many security flaws and most hackers try to exploit this browser more than any other. Oh, and its rubbish too.
