How to get rid of a 'Troyan'?

790 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  tommary0517
Dear Friends,
I think I have a troyan in my computer or something alike. When I am away from the comp. it keeps trying to connect by itself to internet. I tried to download spyware doctor but it did not detect anything, neither did Avast.
My pc is WIndows XP H.Ed. I have a dial-up connection.
Thank you

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

If you have fixed anything with Spybot Search and Destroy,AdAware or any other spyware scanners...please reboot before scanning.
