    An internet search for acir.exe help, I found a dialog using this form. The person helping told the person in need to download CWShredder to get rid of acir.exe trojan. Is CWSchredder available now? I have this on my laptop and need help getting rid of it.

    CWShredder is (or was) available free from TrendMicro. Current version 2.19, hasn't been updated in probably about 18 months. I don't see acir.exe in it's scan list anywhere, so not sure if it would be any use in this case, though it might be.
    It's a stand alone (no install) scanner/remover that was quite effective in it's day. Worth a crack, I guess, but you're probably better off following the advice above.
