I have a trojan backdoor virus and when avg shows me the location of the dll fille i can't get to it cause its hidden.. I've run AVG several times the virus only shows up after reboot. during normal virus scan it doesn't show up.

Anyone know how i can get rid of this?


Thanks,

Try the Panda one....the prorat was for information really, myself I aint ever had a virus, ever. I got a couple in my e-mail once but suing mailwasher pro it only downloads header's so I got rid of it without downloading them.
Let me add I downloaded a file which had a trojan init on scanning download norton told me it had deleted it as it had a trojan in it.

So 1 trojan,
no virri
plenty of yee old spyware in varoius names and guises.

If the virus is in a system restore point, turn it off and then turn it back on, this will remove all restore points and remove the file.

Silly question but do you have XP set to show hidden files/folders? Also what is the trojans name?

I think it depends on what you've done. It's worked 9/10 times for me.
The only time it didn't work was when there was a change made to the registry. Duno what happened exactly.

ok not sure if this was covered but everytime I have had a virus or someone I know has had one they do the same scan the computer and it says clear or sometihng but when they restart it pops back up...

the first thing I always tell them is to look in their processes to see if there is something that is fishy or doesn't seem to fit. I tell them to turn off everything except the essentials...after that I have them look in the startup registry stuff like local machine/...run...ya know

I tell them to kill off everything there that looks fishy not the programs that normally run like in processes where you kill off as much as you can

When that is done I tell them to run their virus scanner again and usually that gets rid of them because if you don't stop the process or kill of the registry keys it will always pop up when you restart or ithe virus scanner won't delete it cause it's still running...

XpGuy If you are still having problems look for me on AIM until like 9 then I go out to get drunk so will not be very useful...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
