    I am currently running XP Pro, Yahoo browser, Mozilla Firefox, DSL connection thru sbcglobal, CA e-Trust antivirus, running thru a router w/firewall, Ad-Aware SE personal and spybot. All are updated yet I can not get rid of this trojan horse called "WIN32.SILLYDI.ak . It has renamed itself 12 times after running all programs and finding several trackers and such. Everytime I start up the box it finds another "win32.sillydi" trojan in the same location but different name and removes it, yet it will be there again later. Is it the programs associated with Yahoo browser's?


    Plz help if you can and thank you.

    :cool:

    Hi there, can you please follow the steps located here, just use your Anti-virus instead of Nod32.

    From what I have read about this trojan the steps in this thread should remove it...

    Lets us know how you go...

    Cheers :D

    it seems to be gone but i still cannot use notepad like before by clicking on items. do i need to replace that file in m system (notepad.exe)? i am going to run thru the process again and see if it helps(this will be my 4th time).

    Again thank you "Senior Blackspear" from the down under - you are the

    Can you try the following:

    Place your Windows CD in the drive, click start > run, type in CMD, when the black window opens type in "sfc /scannow"

    SFC (System File Checker, a part of Windows File Protection) will replace any changed/damaged system files with a clean copy. SFC may not solve every problem, but it's a good start that anyone can do.. I even run SFC once every few months just as a matter of maintenance. The worst I've seen it do is replace my manufacturer's video driver with the Microsoft one, which is really more of a minor annoyance than a problem (just reinstall the driver.)


    My pleasure :D


    That would be good :D

    Cheers :D
