AVG Security.  Vista Home Dell 530 Inspiron....64 bit operating system

 

AVG shows it as Trojan Horse Generic29.AJGE but can not remove it.

 

My knowledge manuvering around the computer is above average.

 

I do have a clean laptop for backup use and research.

Those are both folders.

Does AVG tell you what files in those folders are infected?

This came from MBAM

 

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows|Load (PUM.UserWLoad) -> Data: c:\users\mdtave~1\dxkusa.exe -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
 

AVG says after Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes\mbam.exe

 

After $RECYCLE is BIN\S-1-5-21 and then a bunch of numbers

This one is surely false positive as MBAM is not a malware.

 

As for the second one empty Recycle Bin and re-run AVG.

See if it finds anything.

 AVG is about 67 % done, thus far has identified 2 threats, during its registry phase.  Will report final when completed.

 

As it is 1 a.m. here, it will probably be a few hours.

 

By the way,FYI,  previously when I ran MBAM it would identify 1 threat, remove it, and then it would come right back, self replicating I guess.

Okay, in order this is what occured...

 

1. Ran AVG...showed 2 threats Trojan Horse Downloader Generic13,AKXG  C:\Windows\SysWow64\msiexec.exe.   AVG says it healed both of them.

 

2. Ran MBAM again, which activated AVG to inform me of Generic29.AJGE, which it in turn failed to remove.

 

3.  Same MBAM result...1 threat..

Registry Values Detected: 1
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows|Load (PUM.UserWLoad) -> Data: c:\users\mdtave~1\dxkusa.exe -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
 

Of course it will come right back as it has before.

 

That is it up to the present.

1. Looks like a legit file.

Upload C:\Windows\SysWow64\msiexec.exe here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/ for security check.

 

2. You're not saying what file and in what location is indicated.

 

3. Re-run MBAM and post new log.

2.  This is what AVG is telling me.......

 

c:\$RECYCLE.BIN\

S-1-5-21-70958898-3549120117-1537960985-1000\

$3056bfcb08c9467e9d3a6363f3d670ce\n

 

Then when you hit protect me...it says failed...under TYPE it says f

File or Directory

 

That is basically all the information AVG gives me.

That's definitely false positive.

 

Your MBAM log says "No action taken".

Re-run MBAM, fix the issue and post new log.

Every time i run MBAM, it triggers AVG and the virus threat...same one every time.

 

Also once I delete threat from MBAM, the same one will reappear immediately on the next scan when I run it 5 minutes later.

 

One thing, when this whole mess started, I kept getting a request to authorize Flash Player and no matter how many times I denied, it the request immediately reappeared.

 

Here is the MBAM log with threat deleted.

If i run Mbam again, the same threat reappears, tried many times before logging on here.
