It appears my HPcompaq nx9005 notebook is infected with a trojan horse virus
(tmprbf07a.exe). I am running WindowsXP home SP2 with Norton Anti-virus
software and an up to date subscription. This virus is not detected by the
virus protection software until I open a browser on the internet. It normally
takes a couple of minutes for the warning to appear, however the message
states "repair failed - access denied". I have followed the recommended
symantec procedure for disposing of this virus but without success. Does
anyone have any suggestions?

There are anti virus News Groups specifically for this type of discussion.

microsoft.public.scripting.virus.discussion
microsoft.public.security.virus
alt.comp.virus
alt.comp.anti-virus

Dump the contents of the IE Temporary Internet Folder cache (TIF)

start --> settings --> control panel --> internet options --> delete files

1) Download the following three items...

Trend Sysclean Package
http://www.trendmicro.com/download/dcs.asp

Latest Trend Pattern File.
http://www.trendmicro.com/download/pattern.asp

Ad-aware SE (free personal version v1.05)
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

Create a directory.
On drive "C:\"
(e.g., "c:\New Folder")
or the desktop
(e.g., "C:\Documents and Settings\lipman\Desktop\New Folder")

Download Sysclean.com and place it in that directory.
Download the Trend Pattern File by obtaining the ZIP file.
For example; lpt520.zip

Extract the contents of the ZIP file and place the contents in the same directory as
sysclean.com.

2) Update Ad-aware with the latest definitions.
3) Disable System Restore
http://vil.nai.com/vil/SystemHelpDocs/DisableSysRestore...
4) Reboot your PC into Safe Mode and shutdown as many applications as possible
5) Using both the Trend Sysclean utility and Ad-aware, perform a Full Scan of your
platform and clean/delete any infectors/parasites found.
(a few cycles may be needed)
6) Restart your PC and perform a "final" Full Scan of your platform using both the
Trend Sysclean utility and Adaware
7) Re-enable System Restore and re-apply any System Restore preferences,
(e.g. HD space to use suggested 400 ~ 600MB),
8) Reboot your PC.
9) Create a new Restore point

* Please report your results ! *

That's because *any* infector can be named *anything* !

To really get an idea what the infector is, it should be submitted to Virus Total --
http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
The submission will then be tested against 16 different AV vendor's scanners.

Another way to submit is to send the suspect file to the following email address
scan<at>virustotal.com
{ replace <at> with @ } with only the word SCAN as the subject.

Excellent this worked.
Followed your advice to the letter and the Trend sysclean package found the
virus and reported the following;
First Scan
C:\windows\gcasServ.exe found virus [Troj_Dloader.bn]
1st action move failed
2nd action delete deleted
Second Scan
Again found the infected file but this time cured the file.

No problems since.

Thank-you for your help.
