    Hi all,

    Help!! I can't get rid of a trojan called start.exe no matter what I do. The adware and virus killers find it and remove it..but when I re-boot there it is again! How do I get rid of it for good?

    Hi kalsolar, I moved your thread to here as it is not a TDS3 support question and will probably receive better attention here :)

    Hi Kalsolar welcome to Wilders.

    From what I have just read you should be able to remove this by following the comprehensive steps found in General Cleaning.

    If these steps do not resolve your situation, you will need to download and run “Hijack This” found here and post your log at one of the forums found at A-SAP. The two bigger forums for HijackThis log processing, (meaning they process more log threads each day than most others) are: SpywareInfo.com and CastleCops.com. Be sure to read their posting policy in the links at their log review forum sections prior to posting.

    The steps mentioned in General Cleaning use software that ought to be part of your security, as an absolute minimum.

    Once your system is clean, you may want to take a look HERE. As well there are discussions HERE and even more HERE.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    thanks blackspear,

    have followed the info given, sadly start.exe still remains when I boot up along with cm.exe what ever that is. I'll use hijack this and post a logfile as suggested and see if anyone can come up with a solution from that. thanks again, much appreciated
