For the last few days every time I attempt to open a browser window, be it IE or My Computer/Documents etc., my AVG free edition pops up with the following message...

Threat Detected!
While opening file: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\devmgrn.dll
Trojan horse BHO.AXY

I have tried using heal and move to vault but they prompt me to restart and the problem is still there after rebooting. I've even tried in Safe Mode.

I've used HijackThis, AVG free, Avast free, KillBox, BHODemon and AdAware to remove it but nothing has.

Saw one indication on the web that it is an AIM malware.

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.


Post a Hijack This Log in the Hijack This Forum by following the directions in the link below if the programs above have not removed ALL malware.

Hi jclfc,

Seeing that you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum posted Here, you shouldn't be making any changes to your system.

This topic will now be closed, since you have an open log posted.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
