    Tried System Restore to get back to where you were before you tried to fix the trojan? If you had made a backup of the Registry before you made the changes you'd be able to try again, or try another method of removal.

    Keeping your AV software updated is highly recommended. Backing up the registry is also highly recommended. I have personally been mucking around in my registry since win 95 and I still back up before making changes.
