    A Torjan horse is just a program that causes intentional malicious effects and tricks the user into running it by saying its another program. eg, there was a trojan called pkzip03.exe or whatever and people thought it was the installer for PK Zip.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
