How can I remove Win32 trojan.gen?
« on: March 29, 2005, 01:09:54 AM »
I use Windows XP 2002 and the last scan I did with avast showed I had a win32 trojan.gen virus.  Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it.  Also is this why Word is playing up?  Changes that I make to my documents seem to dissappear when I try to save them.  Please help!

evot, I posted an answer for you in another thread... Seems that you started two for the same problem.
Please, open just one thread for receiving help. I think the other is on 'Virus' board  ;)
