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.
