    McAfee tells me I have a trojan....SSTFB.tmp and failed to quarantine it. They suggested I verify that the file is not write-protected. I cannot even find the file much less unwrite protect it in order to delete it. Anyone know how I should proceed?:confused:

    Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons – I do not recommend
    using the Duplicates files button
    as many dupes are there on purpose.

    Not all files will delete – that is normal.

    In the unnecessary button I check the top 4 entries

    No, I ran it from 'search' and found nothing. Will try your way.
