Still trying to solve the problems with my computer. Using WindowsXP, I.E.
and O.E. If I am in the wrong newsgroup, please show the proper URL.
I did a scan with XoftSpy and found "Trojan.Win32.FTP Attack - Registry
Value. It is in: software\microsoft\windows\current version\run\reminder
I then did other scans with Spybot, S and D; Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1;
and Ad-Aware SE. None of these three found this Trojan. Is XoftSpy for
real? Can it find Trojans that the others cannot? I also have constant
problems with "Data Miner" and XoftSpy says it automatically gets rid of
them too.
I would greatly appreciate any information on the differences in these
spyware systems. I would gladly pay the fees IF I knew the system was the
best and would work.

These tools scan for spyware and not for trojans. To look for them, go to www.moosoft.com and download "The Cleaner".
