  1. Can someone tell me if I'm infected, I've tried several times to get rid of trojans but they keep coming back.

    If you have run your AVG and it deleted the infected files, try going into
    control panel/system and click on the system restore tab. Check "Turn off
    System Restore" and reboot. It will wipe out all of your saved restore points and create a new one.
    I've had this problem where AVG detected a trojen and it kept coming back, or my computer was telling me about it again, after I thought I had taken care of it. Hope this helps

    Thanks, I will try that. I run ad-aware and spybot as well as AVG for viruses. AVG said it deleted the file and up untill about an hour ago my desktop wallpaper said "Your computer has been infected click here to run a spyware scan." That took me to a PSGuard site and it installed that on my computer and i unistalled it but up untill an hour ago i couldn't get it to stop telling me my computer was infected.

    Don't forget to uncheck the system restore box, and turn it back on. Putting
    System Restore in Win XP was the best thing MS ever did. I know it has saved
    my **** a couple of times. ;)
