It would help to define the AV software that decalred this Trojan and the fully
qualified
name and path to the file(s) deemed to be infected with this Trojan.

Let me guess since you've not supplied sufficient information. Spy
Sweeper detected and removed the malware but you keep on
getting reinfested because you failed to flush System Restore.
If that's the case then have Spy Sweeper or Ewido or whatever
you used to detect the Trojan remove it again. Then follow these
steps:

1. Right click the My Computer icon on the Desktop and click on
Properties.
2. Click on the System Restore tab.
3. Put a check mark next to 'Turn off System Restore on All Drives'.
4. Click the 'OK' button.
5. You will be prompted to restart the computer. Click Yes.

Now once you have rebooted the computer you will need to re-enable
System Restore.
To re-enable the Restore Utility, follow steps one to five and on step
three remove the check mark next to 'Turn off System Restore on All
Drives'.

Finally, run your antimalware program again to verify that the
Trojan is indeed gone.

We need to know _where_  your antimalware product finds the malware,
and which antimalware product is alerting. It may be that it's just
continually finding it in your System Restore. If so, it can't remove
the malware from there.

First of all, I did a quick check on Spy Sweeper and it doesn't
turn up on a list of Rogue anti spyware apps. In fact, there
was some implication that it might be ok. But that doesn't
mean it won't false alarm.

Second, what does a sweep of Windows show? The empty
memory sweep indicates that Spy Sweeper doesn't find
any malware actively running.

The registry sweep alert on \mssmgr\ doesn't show entries
as I'd expect to see them, and that report means nothing
to me.

Have you run the usual recommended antispyware products
such as Spybot S&D,  AdAware and SuoerAntispyware as
cross checks? Have you tried anti Trojans such as Ewido?
Which antivirus products do you use? Which ones have
you tried?

Sorry I can't help you any more than that. I'd try other
known good scanners to see if they find anything. BTW,
it's best to scan in Safe mode. Are you doing that?

I concure with Art.
