Yep....Sounds like that is the baddie. Here are the symptoms of the DADA.A worm:

The virus alters the ceiling for conventional memory, so that the system only has about 64K of conventional memory available. The remaining memory below 640K appears as available memory, not conventional memory. As a result of the Dada virus' alteration of conventional memory, execution of .EXE files over 64K in size may not execute in the way the user expects. Unpredictable errors may result.

Did you get an option to fix it at the end of the TrendMicro scan? If not, then it is probably time to d/l and antivirus program and use it to scan and fix viruses. I believe AVG antivirus is one of the best free programs around. I happen to like Norton antivirus and you can get it for under $15 look here

Does that help?
