How do I get rid of a trojan in Windows 95/98/ME?
Numerous trojans that target these operating systems simply cause them to crash and reboot the computer. You will then arrive at a rescue prompt; press F5 or F8 (the former will provide more options) and type “fixmbr” followed by Enter. After completing this, restart the computer normally. If fixmbr does not resolve the issue, repeat the process until it does; however, some older versions of Windows 95 will not recognize this command and will continue to display the same error message with each restart.

In certain circumstances, none of these solutions may work. Insert your Windows CD and boot from it if this occurs. Then, follow the steps in the section titled “How do I remove a trojan in Windows 98/ME?” (as shown below)

How do I eliminate a trojan from Windows 98/Me?
Warning! Before removing any files from your hard drive, ensure that you have successfully booted from a non-infected floppy disk, CD-ROM, or another operational hard drive; otherwise, you risk corrupting both your primary and backup drives. Ensure that nobody is likely to turn off the PC’s power supply or main switch in the near future.

We strongly advise that you have a recent backup of your hard drive, or at least of all essential files such as work-related documents, spreadsheets, presentations, databases, etc (important email messages should be backed up separately). It is also recommended that you install anti-virus software prior to carrying out this procedure. You can create a backup by copying files from your hard disk to another (off) computer on the network, or to a floppy disk, Zip drive, or CD-R. Alternatively, you can use Norton Ghost (or a comparable program) to create an image of the C: directory on your hard drive and save it for later retrieval.
