Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal
Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the
PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you
can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded
the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode
[F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run
in Safe
Mode.  It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive
PDF help
file.  http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm

I'm quite sure these anti-virus cannot see nor remove the malware I'm

because I have CA antivirus installed on my pc, I've tried kasperky
and mcafee online scanning, without any results. I haven't tried
sophos, instead...

Then I must ask...

How do you know that you have "...two trojan AGENT.XJ e GROMP" infected files ?

Please provide full details.

BTW:  The reason I include 4 different AV scanners from 4 different vendors is
because one
may catch what another may miss.

As I wrote in the first post:
"I scanned my PC with Spyware doctor free licence" (scanning only).

If you want to remove them you have to pay. I don't want.
If I should pay each single AV, just because one sees a virus, one
sees another... how much I'd to spend?
I don't even know whether it is a trick from sw productor to sell more
software...

I just have to try sophos, that I downloaded from the site. It' free

Well then I hope you tried those other scanners from Safe Mode,
or preferably Safe Mode With Commaond Prompt, or after booting
from some other copy of Windows.

No, i think I have to try it, right?.

Anyway I just tried Sophos (30days trial full option), but it cannot
individuate them
Instead I tried Sophos anti-rootkit tool (free) and it sees one of the
infected files, then it
says it'll remove it, but when I restart, the file is still there.
Probably I've to
scan from another sys as you pointed...

thank you all very much.

I'm sinking into a frustration...

Almost certainly what you have is a scam; rogue anti-malware.

Did you deliberately install this 'Spyware doctor'?  If so, why?

Was it recommended?

Did you check reviews?

Don't you think it a bit suspicious that the ONLY scan that detects these
'trojan' files also requests you pay for removal?

Have you checked the actual name at
http://spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm ?

Have you submitted the 'infected' files to anti-virus companies?

I'm not expert about such a stuff, and I don't know what
is a "scam" (maybe because of english).

Anyway consider that before installing Spyware doctor,
I had CA antivirus and it detects Win32/Stresid.T virus
and it cannot remove it. Is CA anti-v a "scam" also?

Certanly I'm getting puzzled.

No, I was suggested by people on italian usenet pc-security
news group (it.comp.sicurezza.virus). They told me it's the best anti-
virus on the net.
I also tell you that at first I didn' trust who gave me
this suggestion, and I asked other people on
that NG. I received only positive reply.

At that point I decided to install spyware doct. and scan.

Yes, I already wrote that.

No, thanks i'm going to read it. But assume that I'm not going to
trust it either.

I hesitate to trust any product that "finds" malware then charges me to
remove it.  I also tried Spyware Doctor around a year ago and it "found"
around 15 pieces of "malware" that NOD32, CounterSpy, A-Squared, Ewido, et
al, did not "find."  Before getting all excited about not being able to
remove this thing, I would scan with some other anti-malware apps to see
what they find.  You can download Superantispyware, AVG Antispyware, etc
for free.  I have seen a lot of posts in security forums from people who
have experienced their share of false positives with Spyware Doctor, so
just because it says some nasty is there doesn't mean it is actually
malware.  That's why it's good to use multiple tools.
