    Hello. I've been trying to remove this Troj_Websearch.A virus that Trend Micro detected on this PC for the past 2 weeks and have been unsuccessful. I followed the directions on Trend Micro's pages, but I never see any of the problems that it points out. Here is the statement of the infection:

    Scan Type Real-time Scan
    Client MN44VW941D (
    Login name db21
    Date/time Monday, January 31, 2005 06:57:35
    Virus name TROJ_WEBSEARCH.A
    Infected file ibis-100[1].0000
    Directory C:\Documents and Settings\db21\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\CHCLK78P\
    Action Virus successfully detected, cannot perform the Clean action (Virus successfully detected, cannot perform the Rename action)

    Now, I've deleted the temp files time and time again, so I'm wondering if either the virus is resident or if the user keeps going to an infected webpage. Here's the transcript of the HiJack this log:

    Sorry, I diddn't mention that before, but I did that too. I'm at the point that

    a.) I need to recreate her profile on her PC and
    b.) Find out what web sites she is going to and replicate them on my test box.

    Yeah, I tried this. See, we have Trend Micro's OfficeScan on our PCs, as an enterprise, and the definitions get updated continuously, but I think the product is a sham. We tend to have more issues with this product than we ever had with our previous product, InnoculateIT. Thanks for the help anyway, but I'll see where she is going on the Internet and maybe (as a worst case scenario), reimage her machine
