I am using windows xp and. A trojan wants to upload everything in my disk.
My hard disk was partitioned into three volume. And I formatted the c drive. But when I reinstall win this trojan came again when I connected to internet.
How will I clean?
Thanks

You can download HijackThis from this page (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/). Scan your computer and you will be able to remove spywares and some viruses.

This software is free.

BTW, your post has no relation with wxWidgets :wink:

Well the "Open discussion" description clearly says that "This forum is reserved for everything you want to talk about. It could be about programming, opinions, open source programs, development in general, or just cool stuff to share!" which IMO doesn't really mean that "everything must be about wxWidgets".

But yes, maybe this isn't the best forum for the virus/anti-virus topics, since other forums would probably give more answers with a smaller delay.

To the original poster:

Do you have an anti-virus program installed? I suggest using the free edition of AVG. Also is your windows up-to-date and are you using a firewall (something other than the one that comes with WinXP)?

I do not think much of the quality of Microsoft products, but I must admit, that the WindowsXP firewall is perfectly capable to defend a computer, once it is actually turnt on (disabled by default on SP1). SP2 introduced application specific exceptions, and with that I do not see a reason to hog the system with something else.

Disclaimer: Everything above is my personal opinion. And I do not like anything else from that corporation, save the C++ compiler.
