Need Help to Remove Trojan Horse "TR/PSW.kates.C"

Unread postby Flybird123 » October 3rd, 2009, 2:33 pm

Problem: Every I start up the computer or open a program I get a slight slowdown followed by a bunch of threat found pop ups from Avira Anti-Virus saying that I have a trojan horse named "TR/PSW.Kates.C". I select to move to quarantine or delete file but it doesn't do anything. When I attempt to manually delete the file, it is instantly recreated. When I scanned this computer for the first time there were several threats detected, I have cleaned them all off except for this one.
