Hi everyone, I hope someone can help, my laptop had this Trojan:DOS/alureon.E on it. I had avast installed and it always found the trojan but could never remove it after numerous restart attempts. Eventually my laptop (windows vista) gave up on me but yesterday I had someone come and use a boot disk so I could retrieve all my files and documents onto my external hard drive, which we did, he then factory reset my laptop which I was hoping would eliminate this trojan. My laptop now seems to be working fine. Unfortunately the infected file must still be on my hard drive as now Microsoft Security Essentials is now finding this trojan again. Now I'm in a loop of MSE finding the infected files, removing them, asking me to restart, finding them again etc etc.. I have run the bootrec.exe commands which said they were successful but I would like to know how I could get rid of this completely!! I obviously need to removed the dodgy files from my external hard drive, but how do I get it of my laptop? Any help would be much appreciated and please bear with me as although I know a little about computers, I am nowhere near an expert! Thanks so much
