    I think I've got a trojan on my system. In the windows task manager it's smss.exe and csrss.exe. I checked on google and it did seem to be a trojan but when I run my virus checker it doesn't seem to pick it up (mcafee 8). Can anyone advise me?

    Ok. Thanks Enyo. The reason I was looking for a trojan was because when I go to certain sites they seem to change my text size in internet explorer. It's weird. I can change them back ok but something must be causing it. Any ideas?

    well sites can change text size w/ html like size=-1 or something ... probably also possible thru javascript or similar.
