Hi, Got stung by that nasty System Alert trojan and found this site while investigating how to get rid of it. I run a Dell desktop with Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3 (not a new machine and I'm due for an upgrade..ysy!) Pentium 4CPU 2.80GHz 2.79 GHZ 1.00 GB of RAM... nothing fancy. I'm not sure of the other hardware specs though. I followed a few threads and found the folks here friendly, informative and interesting! I live in Rumney NH and work for Plymouth State University as a programmer. Thank you for the time you put into all this!
