Normally, I wouldn't call myself a "noob", but this trojan is a stickler and I would really appreciate a helping hand. I have an up-to-date virus signature file. CA AntiVirus has caught win32/vxidl.dmt in an .exe file that belongs to a program I use constantly for business everyday. Now it has deleted the .exe and I cannot start my program. I tried reinstalling the program but before it can finish installing win32/vxidl.dmt is found again and CA deletes the .exe file again. CA AntiVirus sure doesn't seem to be doing a good job getting rid of this. The link on their site has no removal tool and doesn't instruct how to manually remove or check that it is completely gone. I have run a lot of other "Anti-BadStuff" programs (Spybot S&D, AdAware, SDFix, PestPatrol, and Trojan Remover. Nothing seems to help. Every time I try to reinstall my business software (Shooting Star Auction Management program) win32/vxidl.dmt appears again. I certainly do not think Shooting Star is causing this. I've used this program for several years with no problem whatsoever (and I had not done anything to it, like update to a different version or anything) it was working fine before this win32/vxidl.dmt infection. Any suggestions? I can post a HiJack this log or the report from SDFix if necessary. Thank you in advance.

Thank you for considering this problem. It ended up being a False Positive being reported by CA AntiVirus. Everything back to normal now.
