It is defenitely advantageous to create an 'image' of the operating system
and create a data/file backup of the affected PC.
The image can then restored to the impacted PC and the user's data/file is
subsequently restored to the operating system.

An experienced and properly prepared user can do that in substantial less
time than scanning with complex and sophisticated AV applications.

Alas, since many users are less prepared and/or lacking the experience;
Scanning with an AV apps. is the only option, unless the user consults a
computer technician.
If you're one of the many less-experienced users, try to go through the
succeeding steps 1-4:

1.Clear the (IE) temporary Internet files and the history cache.
Click 'Start' and then click 'Run'... then type (or copy/paste)
"inetcpl.cpl" (w/out quotation marks) into the box, then click the 'OK'
button.
In Internet Properties panel 'General' tab, under 'Browsing history', click
'Delete...'button, in 'Delete Browsing History' panel, click the 'Delete
all...' button then place a checkmark into the box beside 'Also delete
files and settings stored by add-ons', Click 'Yes' and exit the Internet
Properties panel by clicking the 'OK' button.

2.Clean HDD
Click 'Start' and then click 'Run...' then type (or copy/paste) "cleanmgr"
(w/out quotation marks into the box, then click the 'OK' button. Select
your drive (presumably WinXP (C:) and click OK.

3.Download/execute:

SuperAntispyware - Free

Both free versions of MBAM and SAS are on-demand scanners and offer no
'real-time' protection. Keep them installed and use them as
'second-opinion' scanner which is purposely (by design) recommended by
their respective authors.

an emergency as a disinfection utility for Windows NT, Windows 2000,

Re: Delete BHO N Trojan

Which BHO N Trojan?

What program identified this as (full malware name), and where (full
path) was this malware located on the file system?

It would be a shame to flatten and rebuild if no real threat exists. If
the malware "trojan" was executed and you are dealing with an
installation that compromised your security - IMO there are enough
"unknowns" as a result of actions the malware may have taken to warrant
flattening.

If it is a more static adware infestation, the "unknowns" might be
reduced enough so that cleaning is possible - and what degree of
confidence in you system's integrity you are comfortable with, will
guide your actions.
