Hi guys!! G_d bless our troops. I need some of your great advice again. I recently upgraded from Win 98 SE to Win 2000 Pro. I have a P 4 with 512 Ram. I did have a virus on this machine but had it clened by a professional over 2 weeks ago. Norton says I'm clean. Swat It says I'm clean. Spybot says clean. Everything is running well. I have Zone Alarm Pro. Here is the good part. Ad Aware says I have a Trojan in svchost.exe. It's the only program that says I have anything wrong. The idea of a hacker being able to take over my computer makes my skin crawl. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
