Trojan, Am stuck, help!
« on: March 15, 2004, 09:11:53 PM »
I was warned of an infection called:

win32:Trojan-gen.

It says it's in this file:

C:\ Program Files\Common Files\CMEll\CMESys.exe

Yet when I try to move to chest, it says it can't be found...I can't move it, delete it, or repair it either!

Further, what is this file???

Thank you in advance for any help!

Tutter, welcome to the forum!
Until one of the experts comes along to help you, may I suggest that you use the search feature? Just put the name of the trojan in the subject area and it should bring up a thread or two...
this has been discussed here before so you can do some reading until someone with more expertise can answer you.

good luck,

cojo
