    hi - I'ma relative newbie who's been hit some kind of trojan and can't seem to get rid of it. Tried all the "easy" sol'ns - running Adaware, CW Shredder, Spyware Blaster, etc...but doesn't seem to go away. HouseCall says its TROJ_REALTENS.H and TROJ_SMALL.GX...any idea how to get rid of this? Explorer keeps getting redirected to C:\Windows\secure.html. HJT log is posted below:
