My home PCs won't be producing for a few more days.
It appears that despite firewall and antivirus program, a nasty trojan (MTX or PE) which has been floating through email since 2001 has found its way through to my main machine.

I believe that the antivirus was very quick on the ball as it informed me of the trojan, but, despite the antivirus program healing, the socket DLL is still compromised and prevent much work from happening.

The amount of work to repair the PC, do some additionnal backup of data, and review security will take a few days.

for those interested, the most exhaustive info is there www.giac.org/practical/Hamid_Pirooz_GCIH.doc
