    I have a couple of trojans on my PC because I forgot to turn my AV back on after installing sometime!

    I have used Spyware Doctor / Registry Doctor / Ad-Aware / Kaspersky AV and non on them can remove them! I think they are password protected or something but they cannot be deleted!


    There are a few more but Ad-aware is saying they can't be disinfected or the file is password protected!

    Help plz :(

    Have you tried booting into Safe mode and deleting them manually that way?

    Unlocker to unlock so you can delete.

    I was going to suggest Unlocker but I wasn't sure if it would be able to deal with "password protected" files. Suppose I could have mentioned it just to see if it worked or not.

    First thing I'd do would be to boot up in Safe Mode and run all those scans again - those programs might then be able to remove them.

    Also have you tried Googling for a manual removal process for any of them - or a specific program that removes them?

    Usually if something is hard to remove, there is oftem a lot of info on the web as to how to do it....
