    I have one that NOD can not get rid of in Safe mode. Using XP Sp1 on this machine. AMON file C:\WINDOWS\msmsgsui.exe Win32/StartPage.NBS trojan. What are the recommeded trojan scanners and/or DOS programs? I sometimes use Hirens boot CD with F-Prot. Is there a NOD boot CD or plug in for DOS scanner w/NTFS support?

    Please bear in mind that AMON does not serve for cleaning files. Please carry on as follows:
    - restart Windows in Safe mode
    - run the NOD32 on-demand scanner
    - on the Setup tab, make sure the Advanced heuristics, Potentially dangerous applications, Runtime packers and Archives options are enables
    - on the Scan targets tab, select all local drives
    - click the Clean button
    - if NOD32 finds a trojan, select to delete it (if you are unsure whether it's safe to delete the particular file, tick the Quarantine checkbox so that you can restore it at a later time, if necessary)
