Sorry desparate please help
Norton Anti-Virus 2008 is the only thing I have found that gets rid of this. There is a 15 day trial available if you search.
Been looking at porn have you? Just googled for it, it's a media codec....tut tut tut.....

Try Spybot or

and do not, ever unless you know what you're doing install media codecs from unknown sources
Ok, now assuming that Trend hasn't got rid of the infection and has confirmed it is actually there next wee need to remove it.

You ran Spybot and adware but did you update them first? If your running Vista you should also have Windows Defender on your system, otherwise you can download it from here:…spx

Whilst thats downloading you should also download HiJack! This…php

We may need that later if the other programs don't work. Run those and let us know how you've got on...

yep Aggy updated running xp.....will let you know how I get on with your advice tks
When I get a virus I always go her these guys are absolutely fab at sorting and cleaning you up Good Luck
Have you tried restarting in safe mode? Sometimes nasty things can't be removed when the systems running normally... Restart your it's loading up hold the F8 key and then select "run/start in safe mode" then run your anti virus or do a manual search for the files & delete them

Trying stopzilla...then avg in safe mode if it doesnt work...tks for the offer of hijack Aggy...sweet of you...will forward if I get stuck tks
No probs, this is a bit of a tricky virus and may leave some problems in your registry, forgot to say make sure your system restore is off. Once we've finished you'll need to clear out the old ones anyway, just in case the virus is sitting in any of them.
