  1. Thank you sooooooo much for this! I mistakenly installed Reimage Repair, thinking that it might help me with removing a Trojan from my Windows XP but it’s causing more problems for me now including slowing down my start up and throwing a lot of pop-ups at me! So far me following your guide is working very well but I just have one question before being sure that I got rid of it: Where would I find the files you listed that need to be removed manually?

  2. I’ve uninstalled Reimage from my Programs file, but can’t delete any of the files in the Windows file. I keep getting a prompt that says a file is open, even though it isn’t. How do I get this out of my PC?

  3. bonjour tim.
