    Hi all

    As a newbie I'm in a panic.........my computer has been infected with "Exploit-ANIfile Trojan"

    I have McAfee anti virus software that normally sorts these but this one cannot be deleted/cleaned or quarantined.

    The computer is telling me that I have clean it manually. I have tried turning system restore off then trying to delete to no avail.

    I should mentioned that I'm running Windows XP and the pop-up has said “check to see if file is not write protected”.

    I'd really appreciate someone’s help.

    THANK YOU.........Brian

    It's probably not letting you delete it because it's in use. Boot into safe mode(hit F8 on bootup and select safe mode) and rescan. Let us know how you go on.

    Hi, I use McAfee AV & Firewall but I also use TrojanHunter as I feel defending against and dealing with trojans needs a specialist programme. Av's are fine but tend to be jacks of all trades. I also use WormGuard to deal with worms.
