    deleted: Trojan program Backdoor.Win32.Rbot.ied File: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msconf.exe
    i ran my kaspersky yesturday and it found that a file msconf.exe was infected or was a trojan (Trojan program Backdoor.Win32.Rbot.ied) it couldnt disinfect it so it had to reboot and then delete it it was up in my registry as well so i started in safe mode and deleted all that had to do with msconf.exe. as well as booted into my second drive so as to disinfect my drive without having to run any processes at all well the next day it came back obviously i missed it somewhere i think i got it now but i wont know till tomorrow but i have been experiancing laggs and my browser stalling ect. my question is, is this a serious worm i have read up on this win32.rbot but all the articles have a different .end to um none i have found to be the .ied like mine? they say that this is malware but has worm like tendencies??? so what, it will change its .name if you delete or what. will it start to corrupt files?????????basically what im askin is it worth tryin to dissinfect or could i just save my files and reformat. i forgot to save the hijack this file so i cant show you that but its not appearing on the scan now.
