  1. Acer Laptop running winxp media center edition.

    Pc runs fine until an internet connection is made. The the antivirus ( NOD32) pops up with warnings.
    Example:
    http://funtarget.com/fiirstguy.exe
    THREAT:
    probably a variant of Win32/Trojandownloader.Small.Nzm trojan

    or

    http://wonder-porn.com/WP-Admin/testlds.exe
    probably a variant of Win32/Trojandownloader.Small.NRS trojan
    or other similar exe file which seem to be internet based.

    No virus found when I scan.
    I have run adaware with nothing found.
    I have run Uniblue Spy eraser and nothing found.

    Is this a spyware attack or something else ? Hijacker or root kit Just looking for some direction to go now.

    Browser does not have to be open for this to occur. It happens as soon as internet connection is active.

    Thanks for any help,
    Wallie
