pmmom.exe was only an example.

You'll have to look for any dubious process.  Check them all (all the non SYSTEM and NETWORK processes) just in case.

What was the name of that Trojan?

Hi Oonagh

No it doesn't actually provide the name of the Trojan.

See if you can view the quarantine list in Ad-Aware and find the one with the red triangle.  It should have a name.

bkcp may = backup copy

Win32 only identifies the class of Trojan.  They have a variety of names and capabilities i.e. Win32.sillyID.

Do you have an antivirus program running on your system e.g. Norton or McAfee?  The problem with anti-spyware programs like Ad-Aware is that they do not remove Trojans and all the associated files they install and Registry entries.  Even antivirus programs do not remove all the files and registry entries.  At best they remove or try to remove an executable file e.g. badboy.exe that causes the Trojan program to run, but leave all the other files and registry entries in tact.

If you have checked all the processes that are running by using Task Manager and cannot find any spurious process then we will have to assume you may be OK.  Usually Trojans install a program that runs all the time and drains the resources of your computer.  So if you haven't noticed your PC running slowly or any other curious behaviour then you should be OK.

If Norton does not pick up this misc. Trojan then try downloading a free version of AVG antivirus which picks up more than software you can buy on disc.
 ;)
Don't forget to check for norton updates either to make sure you scan for the latest threats.
