Can't run the trend online scan

I can get it to start analyzing files but then it just disappears. Anyone else having trouble?

using its' Java-based Housecall kernel and IE7, it's not working here too. It refreshes automatically and says finish scanning although I haven't choose what it will scan or what scan to run (malware or vulnerability scanning).

If your IE suddenly shuts down when you start the scanner, it's almost certain you have a trojan on your machine blocking it. Here's a new Trend Micro scanner that works a little different. This is the one I use when the regular one fails: http://www.trendsecure.com/free_security_tools/housecall_free_scan.php#

This is nothing new, and I'll lay you odds that you definitely have a trojan. This being the case, I recommend you also scan your machine with AVGAS (formerly ewido) and a-squared. According to the tests by the AV-Comparatives last March, these are the two best trojan scanners. The beautiful thing is, they are also the only two that offer free scanners (you can download them as well). Here they are:

Trend must be the best scan around. I've been doing many many scans in the last few days because my computer did'nt "feel right."
Trend was the only one (not even Hijackthis) that came up with a virus.
This is what it was called: Troj_Generis
located in file: C\Windows\System32\ActiveScan\pskavs
Thanks again for the link.
I'll sleep better tonight.
