    I have been getting this trojan popping up since a couple of days ago. It keeps on happening. The screenshot is the typical thing that comes up.

    But a minute ago, the same warning popped up but the trojan could not be cleaned, deleted or quarantined (i supidly didnt take screenshot). Please help me.

    Its a puper trojan.

    run a virus scan from safe mode, and turn system restore off until its fixed.

    Its in a restore point, just turn off system restore and reenable it. That will remove previous restore points and the trojan stuck there.

    The item in the screenshot is indeed a restore point. If you do as mentioned above, that should take care of it.

    To fix the error you don't have a screenshot for, I would do as mentioned two posts above. Keep system restore off, do a scan in safe mode.

    Good luck :)

    This is why I recomend to people to not even use restore points. Some it is good for, but my opinion is that it is more of a pain than it is worth.
