I was about to PM you, but then I realised you were a guest.  Anyways, I'm looking into your report, but I'm fairly confident that you're mistaken.  What it could be is your AV program is misdiagnosing the file somehow, which happened once upon a time with the Baldurdash fixpack, too.

Is there anyway to keep this from happening?

And yeah, Norton reports it as clean.  Do you use another program?

I use Norton Antivirus that came with my computer but I also have a program called Stinger that's supposed to get rid of Trojans but it doesn't seem to work very well.

I did scan the Weidu folder with Norton and it does report as clean but the next I open up internet explorer after downloading it the trojan comes up and Norton warns you about it.

I've just run WeiDU 155 a couple times, and everything seems all right.  A number of others have had no troubles, either, so my guess is that you contracted this thing from somewhere else.  I'm not sure what else you can do.

I just re-downloaded WeiDU 155 and scanned it with the latest McAfee and it's clean.

The only virus incident I know of with any Weimer projects was one earlier version of IWG2 that was infected.

Unfortunately, it makes me wonder if you don't have something going on that's infecting programs after they've reached your drive.
