    Firstly, re-format your Windows drive to clean out the existing viruses. Secondly, get an antivirus program to sort out anything you get sent. Thirdly, get a personal firewall (I use Sygate, but ZoneALarm is also a good choice) because this will block unauthorised access to your computer from the internet.

    How do you get sent these trojans? Through WinMX or another way?

    There is no easy way to stop your IP being found out. The best thing is to contact your ISP and ask them to give you a new IP (unless you use dial-up internet) to stop the existing viruses getting through. Also, if you know the IP of the person that is sending you these files you can configure your firewall to block all traffic from and to that IP.

    One of the ways of re-entering a chat room with a different IP is by using a dial-up ISP because they get a different IP address every time they connect, in which case you must configure your firewall to block all traffic from that ISP. There are other ways but they are very complex and are hard to block.

    If you know their IP try contacting their ISP, it's a long shot but they might do something about the person that is doing this.

    Of course, you can always avoid the chat feature of WinMX and they will never find you again - i don't use it and i've never had this problem.
