Weird trojan downloader problem

I picked up a trojan downloader a couple of days ago, downloaded software to remove it and all seems fine, except now when I try to save pictures from my browser to my desktop or any other file, as soon as they have downloaded they disappear. Also another thing is I now get a 'this in not a valid win32 application' error when trying to download any software. Anyone know what the problem is?

Yah.. your Windows is borked..

My guess is that in repairing your system the repair tool broke or removed something. Although I havent had to deal with this in a longgg time (thanks Apple!), last time I did deal with it, i had to do a full-wipe and re-install. You might be able to get by with a 'system repair', but then you'll never really know if your computer is still compromised (aka rootkit or something else not being detected).

I did a system restore and it seems to be working ok now. I hate windows, I only use this computer for work. I still have my trusty Mac and now I remember why. Thanks!
