I’m hoping that one of the computer gurus can help with the following situation:
A close friend called yesterday to say that someone in a different area code called her cell phone and described, in detail, some family photos that he’d emailed me (and only me.) Mostly these were old vacation pics, of the grand canyon and such.
When I opened WinTasks, there was an entry that was running with the word “Trojan” in the description; WinTasks killed it, but only after I opened the viewer. I didn’t have time to write down what the full description was, or I’d post that info.
I currently run Sygate firewall, the full suite of Norton, WinTasks Pro, and I sweep with AdAware and Spybot weekly. After I saw the trojan thing, I downloaded Trojan Hunter and one or two more programs. None of them, after deep scanning, came back with a problem. Now, when I open WinTasks, that trojan thing shows up for a split second before it disappears (WinTasks doesn’t list it in the block list.)
At this point, I don’t know what to do. Someone was able to view my friend’s photos, find his cell phone number, and who knows what else. Other than a format/reinstall, are there any suggestions?
Running WindowsXP Home, SP2.
