    I seem to have two trojans on my computer that i cant seem to get rid of. They are: Trojan horse downloader.Purityscan.B and trojan horse downloader.Realtens.D also i don't know if these have anything to do with it but my CD-Rom is acting up and whenever i put in a CD it says that it doesn't detect one, ive reset my computer and cleaning CD's but it doesn't work, please respond i'd appreciate it.

    Hi andrew, and welcome!
    What does TDS say about those trojans, were they detected by TDs or another program?

    I have AVG and it can detect them. Although when i try to delete or transfer them to the virus vault it doesn't let me saying i do not have permision.

    If you ever encounter locked files, if they're executables (such as .EXE, .DLL, .SYS) then they're probably running as processes or modules inside processes, so terminating the host process is usually all that's required to "unlock" the file.

    Other locked files that aren't executable are usually held open by a resident process, so in that case it's just a matter of finding which process is keeping it open.

    Best regards,
    Wayne

    Also if you want to scan with TDS or any other scanner, make sufre no other scanner is running at the same time. Especially AVG has the habit to make files untouchable (locked) or even invisible for other scanners at all!
    To close AVG: open it, the GUI i mean, uncheck all scan options and resident protection and close that abgain, now you can scan with TDS or another scanner.

    Aer you now clean, no more alarms?

    You came to the TDS forum yourself :) We're all in love with TDS, that's why Wayne created it for all of us.
