The information or help you can get on Tek-Tips may be out of date , totally wrong or misguided opinion.  To find absolutely correct and up to date information use the following sources of information about virus and trojan removal. The links and paths are subject to change so don't panic if it isn't exactly as noted. You also need to be aware that there are virus hoaxes circulating. The first part of the listing is for places to check for hoaxes.
