Long story..... bear with me, I'm very verbose I have McAfee virus-scan and recently downloaded Ad-aware (and am keeping it up-to-date with scans every other day) yet I'm still having trouble with this trojan -- it seems like every fifteen to thirty minutes McAfee pops up an alert that says it has detected and cleaned a file infected by the StartPage-DU trojan. The first couple of times, I told it to do a full-system virus-scan afterwards. Mind you, it takes about an hour for VirusScan to scan my entire system, at which time I cannot really do anything else (my system's RAM / virutal memory cache goes berserk on me and starts denying memory requests if I try to do anything else while VirusScan is scanning) But it never pulls anything up. Ad-Aware has come out clean the last two times I've run it. But I'm still getting this StartPage-DU trojan alert regularly. I went to McAfee's site and did everything they said to do.... and it still doesn't work. I get this alert whether I'm surfing the internet or not -- I can be working on somehting in PaintShopPro or in Microsoft FrontPage, with no browsers open to the internet, and I still get that alert. Even playing games I've had that alert interrupt play to tell me that. So I know it's not a specific site I'm going to that's giving me the trojan. I'm at my wit's end, and it's starting to really irritate me. I can't set a "home" page in my browser because this trojan hijacks that and changes it to "about:blank" which points, strangely enough, to some bizarre search engine (I have the MyWebSearch toolbar, which may account for that). What can I do to get rid of this stupid Trojan once and for all? McAfee is good at detecting and removing it, but can't seem to prevent it from coming along in the first place.
