    Try these

    Trendmicro Housecall
    Malwarebytes

    Make sure your A-V is up to date and see if it will run a boot scan after startup which may help to detect it if it is there.

    I tried MWB several times and it's not doing anything. And what is a boot startup?

    So you've got step one: use some anti-virus software (use them all, it won't hurt). Well, step zero should be back-up everything you want to keep.

    Because the next step, when you reboot and find problem is still there, is to open the registry editor and manually search by name for the thing you want to kill and delete every occurrence.

    This has a good chance of killing your operating system if you're not very careful, but it's the only way to really be sure.

    eta How do you know it's a trojan? That sounds unlikely -- probably just some bit of malware from unsafe browsing practices. Does this thing have a name or what else do you know for sure?

    etta the least hassle for you is going to be to reinstall Windows, from scratch. If you have the license/product key, this shouldn't be that bad. But make sure it's a full reinstallation. And stop hitting all the porn sites.

    Don't be daft. It means the program "starts up" at "boot."

    Among the good suggestions already given, add to your list: Regcleaner (or a similar product), and Revo Uninstaller (use the full uninstall if you can see a program you don't want on your computer).

    And to reiterate, back everything up. Malware gets its hooks deep in the guts of your computer, so removing it needs to be at least as strong. Which means you may well end up bricking the operating system.

    Also, read a book or something -- computer is bad for the eyes.

    Spitz just wants a convenient excuse to stop posting here. "My computer were broken!"

    Homey don't play that! Drink some cement and man up! As long as your data is backed up, you can power through some minor malware stuff. Browser hijack? Just go to the registry, search and delete "Candy Crush Saga" or whatever.

    Colt 45. It works every time.

    If you don't want to use a particular brand of condom you don't have to - but you should discuss it with your sex partner, in any event.

    There's also a cream for it. See your local pharmacist.

    Spitz is a man's man -- he put his hand into some cement and felt another hand.

    He put his hand in a Trojan and found some lady's foot.

    I think spitz is dead. He used an elastoman-strength trojan and strangled himself.

    Well I'm glad my computer issues are so entertaining for you.

    I thought maybe it was a Trojan coz someone (probably a cunny funt like yourself) suggested it sounded like one. I tried FF last night, and there were no issues. So I'm guessing it's some very stubborn adware in Chrome browser. I've tried a few programs to try to remove it, but it won't budge.

    Yeah, those are a hassle. You've got to "go deep" to get rid of them, as indicated above.

    There is hope, though -- I got rid of one of those on my dad's desktop computer maybe six months ago (he tried the usual tools, from what I could see, and failed -- I did what I described, just for fun since I was using his computer for something. probably printing something out over at his house). It was some browser thing that had a distinctive name, and it spread to all the browsers and was persistent.

    The nice thing about wiping registry entries on someone else's computer is that (a) it usually works (b) most people don't have the balls to do it and (c) they're quietly grateful when that pest they've been trying so hard to get rid of for months is finally gone.

    He started it. So, is there an update? Like i said, it's a tough nut to crack, but it can be done. You have to accept that you might have to restore all of your files, but this can be done, for sure, if you're willing to accept the risk.

    I was lead to a program that removed the problem (turns out it was a basic adware thing in Chrome).

    Good. Yeah, there's probably a bunch of specialized tools for well-known culprits. But you have to know which one!

    I dub thee "Trojan Man."

    Trojan Man does not make t-shirts. Trojan Man has t-shirts made up for him!

    Oh, look at who's too big a man to take a Sharpie, scrawl "Trojan Man!!!" on an undershirt, and wear it around town.

    La-di-dah.

    Trojan Man doesn't settle for cheap imitations. Trojan Man demands a properly stencilled t-shirt!

    But my way is totally punk rock!

    fine, have the shirt made -- but you have to wear it!

    Would Superman go out flying around without his cape?

    Any self-respecting man-about-town must wear a cape and pretend to be a superhero.

    Shit. I think I might have cracked up.

    But still, I'm RIGHT, dammit.

    Omnibus, omnibus, does everything that an omnibus can. See him run, see him jump.

    You don't know what omnibus means! My fist is getting rigid, just like when I see an omnibus.

    I can imagine your poor English teacher, curled up in a foetal position, swaying back and forward, regretting the effort they put into trying to explain something to you. You could at least visit him/her, you louse.
