I have found a trojan in my computer

Dear Microsoft

While I was using my computer recently today, I have
discovered a trojan in my computer named kernel32.dll.
What it does is that it automatically loads itself up on
startup, and gives my information away through email. I
have no idea where it came from, but it is located in
C:/Windows/SYSTEM32/kernel32.dll. This trojan is used for
a game called 'Gunbound' which steals usernames and
passwords.

I am planning to delete this worm, but I am
unfortunately unable to do it without your help. This
type of worm slows down my computer a bit and it is
greatly appreciated if you do tell me.

If you have a plan, please email my account @
(e-mail address removed) because I may not have a chance to
see your replies in the postboards.

Thanks anyways
-Johnny C.

That's not a worm.

"Kernel32.dll is the 32-bit dynamic link library of the operating system
kernel. Kernel32.dll handles memory management, input/output operations, and
interrupts. When Windows boots up, Kernel32.dll is loaded into a protected
memory space."

Try using anti spyware App's like SpyBot or Ad-aware. You can find both with
a Google search.

LOL, JAX

So, how did you "determine" that this file was a worm. Sorry for my
sarcastic tone, but this posting reeks of a troll.

Yeah, okay, this is a joke, right?

The guy is for real. I don't know where he came up with it being a Trojan
but, if you look in the Help and Support group, you will see another of his
posts directed to me, in appreciation of my post to this thread.
