Question How can I tell if I have a virus or trojan horse on my Vista Ultimate?

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to know how to discern if I have a virus or trojan horse on my new computer which is running Windows Vista Ultimate.

I have used Osris's guide several times in the last two years and it has worked awesome. But I was always using Windows XP Pro then.

Now I am using Vista Ultimate. I noticed the Smitfraud says it is designed for XP.

How can check my new OS and computer for new viruses and t horses?

It's me,

Soar

Osiris,

Should I first go through each of the steps in guide before I post?

Please let me know. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate and some of the programs listed in the guide seem to address only Windows XP.

If you can't run a program just move on to the next program
