How to remove trojan virus from my pc


The avast! Free Online Scanner for Windows XP cannot be harmed with the threats that hide themselves in the files. No unknown virus can affect its scanning process. It proves to be very useful against those infections that can corrupt the antivirus protection software and make it completely helpless. This free online scan can effectively remove viruses, malware, spyware and also the rootkits. It is recommended by the experts not to use more than one antivirus software or else there will be conflicts between the two.

We have a anti virus trojan downloaded on my home computer. Can we do a system restore? Running Windows XP Home edition. What can we do if this fails?


you don't have an 'anti-virus trojan'. you have a trojan that potentially attacks your anti-virus software ;)

a system restore does not remove files, it only reverts windows to previously installed settings.

you really want to get a program to scan for and delete/purge/quarantine dodgy files.

i really do recommend Spybot S&D (search and destroy) for finding these pests, you can get it from:

www.safer-networking.org/

it also helps prevent you getting infected in future. much better than antivirus software. this Anti-Spyware software actually does the job ;)

Solve my problem please


i think those virus have injected some registry files on your system...try scanning with a good and updated anti-virus..and download CCLEANER and run the issue registry scanner.

btw,, its better to scan the OS with an anti-virus via safemode.

Malware threats


What your seeing is called Adware, they are trying to make you think you are infected to buy their software to remove it.

What you need to do:
Go to www.ewido.com a reseller of AVG, download the software and run a FULL scan once complete delete the threats its finds.
