Please pardom me if my issue is naive. I have been trying to rid my other laptop running xp of System Security and its TrojanSPM/LX warning. I have run a full scan in normal mode and found nothing.ull scan i I got a fix message afterwards but got an error message on tring to fix it. I am running a full scan in safe mode, but am not hopeful that it will identify and fix the problems. Other online advice does not work because Notepad and Taskmgr have been compromized. I need step by step instructions that will resolve this. Please let me know how to to this or where I can get help.
This spyware in computer seems to be a recent outbreak.I would recommend you to run stinger utility , please follow the below steps which would help you:
Stinger is a stand-alone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. Stinger utilizes next generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations.
Kindly report back if you still have issues.

Same problem - the stinger didn't find the problem for me - McAfee suite can't find the problem either (I run an updated version which didn't stop this from happening) any other suggestionsMessage was edited by: daisydoo on 1/5/10 10:32:09 PM CST
Does anyone have a fix for this....I have been trying to remove this same trojan for two days now. I have ran full scans with McAfee at least 5 times, Microsofts malware remover 3 times...and the Stinger twice. I was also wondering if Worm.Win32,NetSky is the same as TrojanSPM/LX? I am getting the Worm.Win32.NetSky waring on reboot The TrojanSPM/LX is poping up about every 10 minutes now.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Have a look here
Some people have had good success with, other less so. As a first run you might want to run it in report only mode, with network heuristic check sensitivity level set to high (both available on the 'preferences' button - and please don't run one without the other).
