Mac Trojan Horse! Help!

My g4 powerbook won't finish booting.

Fades out on "OSX is starting up screen"

I'm sure it's a trojan but I don't know what to do.

There are no trojans, viruses

There are no trojans, viruses or worms for OS X. There were a couple of lab demonstrations of possible exploits - which have since been patched anyway - but none that have ever been seen in the wild.

I know that's hard to believe if you're used to PCs...:)
