My Tesco F-Secure anti-virus scanner has found the following trojans:

JS/SillyDownloader.K
in my temporary internet files.

I have deleted all my temporary internet files, but it is still finding these 2 trojans and it does not disinfect them.

How do I remove or deal with these trojans?

Help!

Google for Avast anyivirus; ms antispyware; spywareblaster;asquared(anti malware free edition);cw shredder:and adaware antispyware by lavasoft.

All free protection but don't run more than one antivirus program because they will clash.

You need a product that specifically looks for Trojans. Trojan Hunter has a free trial that you can download click here If that doesn't get it then you may need to get some help to root out the trojan manually.

Anti-viruses are what they say: "against viruses", so don't necessarily deal with trojans, tho they may find them.
Download and install all that Rdave13 recommended (but of course not 2 antiviruses at same time, and you already have Tesco's). Update them - if offered that option - and Run them. Nellie2's advice is correct - you probably need an "anti-trojan", so use her link too.

How the hell did you 'manage' to get a trojan anyway? Via email? If not, how then.............

If you've still got the problem after following the advice above, have a look at click here This will tell you about sillydownloader and contains a link to the Microsoft Knowledgebase that tells you how to do a registry edit to get rid of it.
Don't edit your registry unless you know what you're doing!

Thanks for all your help.
Thank you Nellie2. I have downloaded Trjan Hunter and run it. Curiously it did not find the trojans. However, It may be that they have been overwritten.

Both trojans have now been removed.
