Specs: Windows 7, 2.00 GB (1.75 GB usable)
Computer will not let me access my windows explorer. Say everything is empty. Add and remove shows the programs are still there, but this trojan will not let me get to it. Not even the icons that used to be on my desktop! I downloaded ParetoLogic virus scanner and it shows the virus:
Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Pihar.hx.
Is there any way to remove this without having to replace my hard drive?
Thanks.
Janet
BTW: the trojan is not on this computer I am using right now.

No worries..

Go to download.com and download Spybot - Search and Destroy. They have rules and functions in that program for things exactly like this.

Run that program and I can guarantee you'll be okay.

Gee, now spybot search and destroy says I have Smitfraud-C.generic. What is that and how do I remove it? This turning into circus. I didn't have any of these problems till I switched to Norton Security Suite.
I am going to try running spybot S&D in safe mode.

I did as you said and this is what I got at the end off the scan.

Unexpected error in fixing problems (Cannot create file "C:\Windows\wininit.ini". Access is denied)

Any more thoughts on this? I do appreciate the help.

But are you on an administrative profile? You need to be on a complete Administrator profile in order for this program to work.. anything less than that wont.
