    Hi there TSG!

    I subscribed to another thread before I realised that that was a rude thing to do on forums (sorry).

    I was highjacked by netsecuritypage, and I have tried various things to get rid of it, including installing Firefox, and although I don't have an immediate problem I'd like to know how to get rid of the trojan and registry infections that I have.

    I'm running XP, and XoftSpySE picked up Alexa and Smitfraud in the registry, a Generic Trojan in system32\ixt1.dll and some problem with Windows Update.

    Please help me!

    SOS.
