I tried to open the post titled "Exploit-URLSpoof.gen" from
"phx1hab" and my AV found this to try and launch a trojan.
It is in the Windows NT/200/XP section and was posted on April 14, 2004.
Should this post be removed??!!

Im pretty sure its not a real trojan, its a link that looks like it goes to one site, but send you 2 another (seen it on a joke site about microsoft)

I am the original poster that reported the problem. I am running Mcafee AV and as soon as I opened the post the AV cried out in pain. Temp, restore points and several other areas of the OS (XP Pro). I restored my system back a few days in order to be sure to remove all.

Your last post was 1:18pm, it's now 3:34pm. That's why I use McAfee :D

My version is 4.5 but I'm going to put 7 on in my *spare* time. I'll have to check that site again then and see what happens. McAfee just reports it to be malicious html code so I'm not really worried about it, I just don't like the little bug thing that comes up. ;)

Well, I have bigger problems than Norton at the moment. I had to do a reinstall of XP, but Norton was on that partition, but it doesn't show from the start/programs, so I figured I'd be cute and just reinstall it.......no go.....it's not happy....so I'll have to do a manual uninstall. I use McAfee on half my systems and Norton on the other half, usually both work well unti I start playing around like this ;) Like I said, this is my test machine, so format c: is always an option :D :D

AcaCandy, there is another thread in the Windows XP forum I think. I replied to that one. Just to let you know.

As for the post, I have Norton and I have replied to that post a lot and had no problems... though I was on a MAC at 99% of the time....
