The solution is simple. Reinstall the OS. It's far too dangerous to use it any other way. Here's way.

I was chatting with my friend about a dastardly scheme to collect credit card and more information. Just give away the free computers with what you want hidden inside to collect the info.

No virus, no trojan so no scanner finds it.

Hope this makes sense to you.
