Question about Computers & Internet

Computer problem Whenever I start the computer a message is displayed saying.. Can not find script file "C:\WINDOWS\ststem32\AVG.vbs". Currently I am using trial version of Kaspersky anti virus. Previously I was using trial version of AVG 7.5. This problem started while I was using AVG anti virus. But as AVG was slowing down my computer so I changed it. But the message is still displayed whenever I start the computer.This problem was posted by me 1 day ago. One expert named Chadha Saab suggested me to open windows folder open system 32 folder, find the file avg.vbs and delete it. He also said that if u are not able to find avg.vbs then it might be hidden, goto tools at the top then folder options and u will find an option to show all hidden files and folders just select that one and hit apply and ok then see whether you are able to find that file in system 32 folder, if still u cant find it then goto start then click on search (win xp) click on files and folders and search for avg.vbs in c drive if u find it then delete it.If these methods fail he suggested me to goto this link http://www.download.com/FileAssassin/3000-2094_4-10639988.html and download file assassin.exe install and run it on the system. He also said when u run it u will see a box there ( blank white box in which u need to MANUALLY type the exact link of the file which is c:/windows/system32/avg.vbs Select "use normal delete function" and then click on delete and it would be deleted. But by the first method I could not find the avg.vbs file. When I tried to remove the file using FileASSASSIN it said..... the file you have specified does not exist or is not visible to FileASSASSIN. Please select another file. Now how can I get rid of the problem? Also is Avast anti virus free to download? How good an anti virus is it? Can you tell me where from can I download it?

I think that avg is a great program. One problem you might be facing is low system specs. How much memory do you have and what do you have for a processor? Basically what is happening is that the avg file is still embedded in the registry because it was not properly uninstalled. Some of those programs are very hard to uninstall especially norton. Norton is a pain in the ***.

Anyways. One thing that you can do is go to start, run...then type msconfig BAsically you will go through the services and start-up files that you want to run. Uncheck if you dont want them to run. I suggest to hide all microsoft services. Now unselect any avg file.

Then when you restart since the system isnt trying to load that dll..then you may be able to delete it.

If not, at least you should be able to help a little.

btw. 2 antivirus programs installed on the same computer will cause conflicts as well. be careful I use the avg free edition and its great for me. Stay away from porn and warez/ free downloaded games...etc.

The only way to get a reliable anti-virus is to purchase. Use the control panel - add/remove and uninstall any avg programs. Then run msconfig - startup and disable any avg program. Reboot. See what happens. Purchase an anti-virus and load that.

Disable System Restore. Scan your computer with the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
http://malwarebytes.org/
If you don't have an Anti-Virus program, download Avast and scan.
http://www.avast.com/
If both scans don't detect anything, do this..
Ctrl-Alt-Del > Processes - End the following processes in order:
dxdlg.exe
wscript.exe
Start > Run > regedit - Open the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
In the right hand pane, select Userinit and delete everything except C:\windows\system32\ userinit.exe

Make sure the processes wscript.exe and dxdlg.exe are not running.

Delete the following files
C:\Windows\System32\dxdlg.exe
C:\Windows\System32\boot.vbs
In your Windows drive, search for boot.vbs and delete all of them.
In your Windows drive, search for kinza.exe and delete all of them.
Enable System Restore.
Restart your computer.

My friend that is VIRUS I think.

Win32.VBS.Indra.01 is Trojan Creator - spyware.
You should remove it from your system as soon as possible.
This Trojan Creator is also known as: •Virus Constructor - named by Panda.

Script file "c:\Documents and Setting\Quality\boot.vbs".


I guess this is a Startup item on your computer and you can easily remove this from your computer by going in to the registry. But, before that to make sure you can try disabling it from the system configuration utility..

In order to do that, click Start -> Run -> Msconfig -> Ok
Click Startup tab and look for the entry boot.vbs..
Simply clear the check box and restart the computer..

Lemme know the result.. if it works then i can assist you in removing it permanently.
