need removal help

So I ran into a something unexpected this evening. I regularly run AVG, Spybot, and AdAware. However, tonight I also ran Housecall from Trendmicro. Housecall says that I've been infected with "TROJ_RHEI.A" When I try to follow their instructions to remove it, I don't find the files they are referring to. So, I can't remove it and the other programs to recognize it as being a problem. Anyone have some ideas. Any help would be appreciated. And here's a link to the to the info about the problem.

Thanks. Wade

That looks like the same page that I already visited and didn't find any help from. The steps it suggests to take don't work for me because I can't find the files or entries they are referring to. Any other ideas?

Going from the information, on the page you linked to, I would suggest running scans with Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D, and see if that helps.

You may also want to try a different online scan, such as Panda Online scan.

If you are unable to find any of the files, or registry entries that are mentioned, it is also possible that this is a false positive detection by Housecall.
