    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    P2P programmes are notorious for infecting computer systems with viruses.

    Back up you important data, and reformat, and reinstall. Then, stay away from P2P Programmes.

    Uhh, well i didn't get the trojan from these p2p programs, i got it from a file that i d-loaded directly from an internet page, the trojan was inside a .RAR file.. is there really no other way to fix the problem, when i report this error to microsoft, the say that they think it is one of my devices driver, but that they do not have the sollution for this yet

    Ok. Lets see if we can get your system cleaned up, without resorting to a reformat then.

    Open a new thread in the security and the web forum, after following these instructions.

    Go HERE and have your computer scanned.

    Then, go and read both these threads by RBS. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    How to remove Trojans and its ilk! and How to remove Begin2search / coolwebsearch and other nasties.

    Then see. How to post your Hijackthis log-file as an ATTACHMENT.

    Only post your HJT log into your new thread, when you`ve completed the above.

    Regards Howard :)

    Ok, repairing didn't fix the problem, my pc got just a litle bit more stable... but then again, more problems ocured... tried to uninstal some programs, but it kept telling me that unable to find MSI and blah blah blah..

    It drove me crazy so i've now done a fresh install of windows.. so far so good!

    Thank you again for your help and time!
    ~~Cheerz~~
