Hello dm1906, Great question. I think the actual virus (trojan) that you are referring to is called 'W32.Pinfi' (vice Pinifi). Some of the aliases for this infection can be found here : TrendMicro Virus Database http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=PE_PARITE.B On the above page it states that their free online virus scan will remove this from your computer : Housecall Free Online Virus Scan http://housecall.trendmicro.com There is another tool available that will assist you in removing this trojan as well, should you find the first one does not meet your needs : Panda Software (click on Prevention and Cure) http://www.pandasoftware.com/virus_info/encyclopedia/overview.aspx?idvirus=18181 Please let me know how it works out for you. If you are discontent with your current AntiVirus program, may I recommend this free software that has saved me countless hours on numerous occasions. It's free and comes with an email scanner as well : AVG AntiVirus (Free Version) http://www.grisoft.com To assist with this answer I searched Google for : W32.pinfi removal (used spelling variations of yours) ://www.google.com/search?q=W32.pinfi+removal Thanks again for the question. Should you need further clarification or assistance, please ask. I will do all I can to assist. SgtCory
