    Hi everyone,

    I'm so glad to have found this site, I have a problem - my son has managed to download a trojan horse virus!!

    The colour resolution on the screen is too low, and my PC will not allow me to adjust, I can't do a restore either.

    I ran my virus checker who said I had this trojan horse virus (don't know why it didn't detect beforehand)

    What do I do to put this right, I have run a another free virus checker from the internet and this has isolated the trojan horse, but my PC still won't let me correct the resolution.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    run a virusscan, use the proggie trojan remover, while youre busy do a adaware scan.

    p.s. Welcome to the forums :)

    There's a free program online called Tauscan, it specializes in trojans. You might want to check that out.

    Does it tell you which trojan specifically?

    If you have already isolated and removed the trojan, and you still can't adjust your resolution try reinstalling your video card drivers.
