    how can I rid my system of this trojan?

    When I am searching a topic; say through google, When I click on that topic I am redirected to an ad page such as "daofinder" whereas my anti virus (Mcaffee) gives me a warning but doesn't cure the problem. Is there anything I can do to fix this annoying problem?

    click start, run, type in dao finder it will pull up all listings delete them at their source. Or look under programs and uninstall it.

    In the warning, is there any indication of the source / location of the program? if yes, locate it and try to delete it.. If it is not deleted, try using "Malware byte" tool.

    If you have time, try a linux system. It's really virus free.
    i'd recommand Ubuntu if you're totally new to linux.

    I tried that pitviper. My computer didn't find it.
    Thank you.
    Piotr, I visited that website (ubutu) and it looks interesting. Is there a charge for the service. I couldn't figure that out.

    Run your virus scan for viruses, than clear your internet data for that browser... after you cleared it all close out of the browser and reopen it.
