Default Re: how to remove various Trojan viruses ????

To be honest, it can be really difficult and time consuming to completely remove malware (spyware/trojan/virus...).
It all depends on which ones you caught and how deep they are installed.
It took me over a dozen hours (in multiple sessions) to clean up a computer (on vista) that had been badly infected, where windows update, windows defender and security center had been disabled by some malware. I was doing it for the challenge, but it would have been much faster to backup the little data that relative had and reinstall the OS from scratch.
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
