With the release of Windows XP SP2, I formatted and re-installed Windows onto my computer. As always, things have run very smoothly, but I've found myself plagued my an infestation of this trojan horse vnmispoisn_downloader.exe (downloader.small.7.au). AVG Anti-Virus detects it and even removes it, but its embedded itself somewhere within my registry with some other accompanying program that downloads it all over again. Ad-Aware isn't able to find it or stop it and it keeps popping up. Has anyone had this problem and found an effective innoculation? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,
Jacob

I haven't had the pleasure of trying to remove that little nasty, but have you tried browsing Pest Patrol's attack methods?
