    I'm new here and not very computer literate, so I'm sorry if I'm not explaining this right.

    I'm running Windoxs XP on a Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook with McAfee as my anti-virus.

    I keep getting pop-ups for Generic.dx trojan through my McAfee Security Center. They say it has been detected and then removed. A few seconds later, the same window will pop up and the process will repeat again. It will stop for 10-15 minutes, then start again.

    I've searched for a quick fix, and came across someone elses topic. I read my Java may need updated and soon after, I received notification that an update was available, so I downloaded it.

    I then went on to download HijackThis and have run a scan. I have not had a pop up since I updated my Java, but I just want to make sure I am in the clear.

    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Here is my logfile for my HijackThis scan done a few minutes ago.

    Update: I have been on my computer since my first post and haven't had a pop-up about the Generic.dx trojan since about 1 p.m. EST and I have just received the pop up from McAfee again.

    Here is what my pop up said:

    McAfee has automatically blocked and removed a Trojan.

    About this Trojan
    Detected: Generic.dx (Trojan), Generic.dx (Trojan)
    Location: C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\N97TFJNL\mzx32[1].exe

    Trojans appear as legitimate programs but can damage valuable files, disrupt performance, and allow unauthorized access to your computer.
