Default Trojan Attack -- HELP!!!

Hey

oleupdate.exe, and netconf32.exe, which are supposed to be Trojans, seem to have found their way onto my computer. No idea how though. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to make them go way either. Bloody things are KILLING my internet connection.

Please help me get rid of these things!

Do you have any antiviruse software on your computer right now?

Since it is cutting down your internet connection.if you are using Xp home or professional,try getting into the safemode and then edit the start up,using the command "msconfig" .if you find them on the start up remove them.then you need to edit the registry..its kind of a long process.if you want it i can give you the furthur information on it.

but the best & easiest method is to get an Antiviruse CD which can be run from the CD and clean it.

If u use IE shift to mozilla firefox..... unless u have the latest IE from microsoft..
Just download AVG(anti-virus software) install n run the scan....It will throw all the trojans out of your pc.....thats my jugaad ..i'm sure there are other ways by editing the registry....but its risky if u have never been there...
If u want this software by email ...pm me...

Do you have any firewall? AVG antivirus is free and Zone Alarm firewall is also free.

Trojan, man these things r irrating, best thing u can do is use norton 2006 , update da kit, but i think it still wont go, best thing is to format ur hard disk , not th whole h.d but where windows is installed. Make sure u dont open much of prgrams or esle thell catch it too
