    Hi,
    As a result of a trojan dialler I had (now cleared), i installed SpywareGuard as suggested. I now get the following message every time I boot. I tried several times to take the REMOVE BHO option but it appears again instantly. If I accept it, it still appears again when next I boot up.

    NEW BHO DETECTION ALERT
    On 18:05:54 08/14/2006 a new BHO installation attempt was detected.
    BHO: {A9A2E8B6-82F0-4040-8188-4A2F1134041F}
    ProgramID: n/a
    File Location: C:\WINDOWS\system32\awtsr.dll
    User Action Taken: REMOVE BHO

    I know this file appears on many spyware pages when I search google but is it a baddie or am I just spooked after the trojan dialler??

    I have WinXP all SP'd and patched with the latest version of Spyguard. I have also seen this file associated Adobe which I have loaded on my machine. I have IE7 beta installed, but I never use it. My browser is Firefox.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    David

    Yes....a check by an expert as the others mentioned is a highly recommended and will no doubt find a vundo infection. If you look for a file named rstwa.* ....which is awtsr spelled backwards....you might be able to confirm that.
