serivces.exe + removal

Specs: Windows XP, 180 gb
I have tried Malware and Avast! Virus checker to locate and remove a totally unexpected virus, apparently called "serivces.exe". Every time it pops up--usually in my Yahoo! e-mail--I run both malware and virus checker, both of which find it, quarantine it, and then ask what I want to do: delete? repair? or leave in quarantine. On advice of my computer guru, I click delete, only to have it come back.

I am not a computer expert. Tell me in very simple, every day English what needs to be done to correct my problem.

Thank you.

That's a windows file. Why do you want to delete it? Run hijack this & post the log. If there is anything bad, it should show there.

I am not asking about SERVICES.exe (correctly spelled). I am asking about the trojan, aka SERIVces.exe (incorrectly spelled), which first showed up about 2004 (as I have read in other postings).. It shows up randomly in my computer, mostly when I have accessed My.Yahoo! e-mail page. The Avast! virus checker I have does eliminate it, but only temporarily. The Malware checker also quarantines but cannot completely delete it. I don't want the rest of my files infected with this thing. I have ordered the CD for Windows Service Pack 3; does this contain all the updates and patches that have occurred since 2004? Will it help contain this trojan?

As I say, I am not the most computer-savvy person, so I need English only (preferably no more than 2 syllables), not computer-eze, so I can understand what I am being told to do to get rid of the trojan.

The Windows CD will only help if you do a clean install & it will NOT contain all the drivers you need. Download & run Hijack This. You will see the trojan listed & you can delete it.

How's that for English only? Esta bueno?

You need to run antivirus scan in safe mode. Use Security Task Manager or CureIt to fix it. Good Luck.
