How do I get rid of a trojan horse?

April 23, 2012 at 04:33:31
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, 3 GB
I have McAfee installed on my Win 7 (32 bit) machine and it had repeatedly brought up alerts saying that different DLL's were infected with the ZeroAccess Trojan. I'm also experiencing browser redirects. I ran Malwarebytes' Antimalware and did a full scan. It found several files relating to that trojan, all of which I deleted. However, I still have the problem with browser redirects and McAfee finding infected DLL's. Aside from reinstalling Windows, what can I do to get rid of this trojan? Thanks.

Try this for starters (see Download Removal Tool at top in red):

Read and use instructions on page.

Two other general freeware programs worth trying:

SuperAntiSpyware

Emsisoft Anti Malware (originally designed as a Trojan remover)

Both claim trojan removal capabilities and you will find have
been used on trojans with success if you google around.
