The plight of Troy

Question

Hi!

I recently got the virus Trojan Horse and I can't get it off my compter. I hear that it is not a threat since I have windows98 but I would still like it to be removed. I have Norton AntiVirus, but after detecting it, it can't quantine/delete it. I have updated it just incase and it still doesn't remove it.

this is the information that the computer gives me:

The compressed file c:/WINDOWS/TEMP/Temporary Internet Files/Content.IE5/ZEGOO6E4/js[1].js within C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Business Logic\UWC\Backup\J37492.4377681713.WCU is infected with the Trojan Horse virus.

but I have no idea how to take it off from my computer. I have tried simply finding it and I cannot even locate the file ... Even though I am not computer challanged, I still don't know THAT much about my hardrive etc. Please help!

Thank you very much!!!!

Get this spy-ware/trojan/diler remover: http://download.com.com/3000-2144-10183773.html?tag=lst-0-1

It worked on several trojan horses on my computer (intentionally placed to test the system).

Hope this works.
