My computer was just infected with the JS/blacoleRef.Q trojan. Microsoft Security Essentials was able to flag and quarantine the infection and allow me to download and install the latest malware definitions, (mpam-fe.exe), disconnect from the web and do a full system scan. Another computer was used to go online and research JS/blacoleRef.Q. This trojan was described as not being removable by (most?) anti virus programs. The registry changes that were expected from this infection were not present. A change in a quarantined Firefox file located in my Application Data file had been removed. This system was infected when I clicked on a photograph while doing a Google Image search for plumbing fittings. How can I find if this trojan is still present and active in my system? How, if it is still active in the system, can it be removed? I am very uncomfortable about making changes in my registry. I am also uncomfortable with making random selections of malware removal tools on the web. Help!
