    I'm new to the forum and I'd really appreciated some help.
    after running AVG I found "trojan horse downloader DYFICA.W" which I tried to heal/remove but without succes (!).
    It is located in :
    C:_RESTORE\TEMP\A0396866.CPY


    Thanks, GEJ

    Hi GUZZI1
    In XP you need to diasble (Turn of) restore points for all drives. Control panel - Sytem - System Restore.
    Reboot your Pc This will clear all current restore points. then re-enable restore points and immediately create a new one using the Help & Support System restore.

    Great stuff GUZZI1 :)

    Well I am biased but you could do a lot worse than download the free trial of TDS3 Anti-Trojan from here: http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/
    Also download the latest radius,td3 and place it in the main TDS3 folder when you have installed TDS3.
    Do a full system scan and this should allow you to clear any other remnants.

    Another programme (Donationware) to run would be Spybot Search & Destroy (Anti spyware) Here:
