Specs: Windows XP
I have an "Unknown Win32/Trojan", sever, says to remove it(which I have tried to scan it and take action, but it will not go away and it has locked me out of my intternet connection? I can get into all my programs except the internet and my Sysytems Restor? Red box says "Potential Threat and the details is "iexplore" file. The blue box says "Microsoft Security Essentials Alert"? I have checked everything and all is fine, it is just I cannot get to my internet...every time I click on it this box comes up. I have cleaned it and tried to apply to make it go away, but nothing helps? What can I do to get rid of it?

Hi I hv the same problem as above with the "Unknown win32/Trojan" which I believe is a rogue. My problem is I cannot get on the Internet to download malwarebytes or some other program. Ever time I try to click on explored I get the rogue alert message. How can I get and install a program like malware bytes if I can't access the Internet?? Sorry if this seems elementary but I appreciate the help.

Nycdoc, it's always better to start a new thread with your problem.

Anyways, open IE, click on tools/internet options/connections/Lan Settings and uncheck use proxy server. Click OK and close and re-open internet explorer and you should have access to the internet to download some cleaners.

If that doesn't work, download the cleaners onto a thumb drive on another PC and then load them onto the problem PC.
