Hello everyone I'am new here and looking for some help and gald I found your site. I been getting these popups winantivirus 2007. So I downloaded AVG and used it in safe mode becasue it would not let me run it in normal it would make my computer keep restarting. I removed the AVG and at least I can use my computer. I thought I would try adaware it found win32 trogan.agent and it can not remove it. Can anyone give me the steps on remove this?I never had a virus before so I'am new to this. I am running windows xp home with service pack 2

Thanks

Probably Vundo. Run the Vundofix tool in the link below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

It would be wise to post a log, but that is up to you.
If you don't post, you should run Super Antispyware, after updating, again in a couple of days.

Once you are sure there is no more active malware on your computer, you should flush your system restore points as some are infected. If you ever needed to use system restore you could reinfect your computer.

If you need instructions for doing that, see info in link below.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-xp-system-restore-guide/

It is also a good idea to clean your computer's temporary files, cookies, logs, etc. The easy way to do that is using Ccleaner.
Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/

...I removed the AVG

Any reason for doing that? And was it AVG AS or AVG Free AV?
