    I am infected with the trojan Backdoor.Hackarmy.P in the file windows\system32\win32ser.exe

    Is this a real file absolutely critical for windows to run?? Or is it a virii file to be deleted??

    Does MS have a fix for this? I am on my way there now.

    This is a trojan, just delete the file.

    No MS dont have a fix, this is not a OS issue nor is it a OS component.

    Ummm, no. Of course not. Hehehe <embaressed laugh>

    Hehehe. I thought it was weird that a .dll in that folder got a virus. I haven't dl'd anything into it. Obviously I opened something with one though. Hmmm
