    Once it is in the quarantine vault you can just leave them alone.

    And it would not hurt to do this too

    Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites

    http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
    http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
    http://www.anti-trojan.net/en/onlinecheck.aspx



    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the
    scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or
    make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.

    You may want to post a hijackthis log since in three days you have been hit with 3 trojans just to be sure you are clean

    Go to http://majorgeeks.com/download3155.html and download 'Hijack This!'.

    First make a folder on your computer in my documents called Hijackthis and then Unzip it to that folder.
    Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.

    Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here
    in a reply.
    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
    so do NOT fix anything yet.

    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
