Hello,

I am new today to your forum and hope that you can help me; donations will be sent! :-) I work from a home computer and for the last 5 or 6 days it has been extremely slow. What's new? I unloaded Norton, put ClamWin on and then this started. I then took Clam Win off and loaded AVG free. It is running and has found A0026661.exe on my portable back up drive. TrojanHorse PSW.Ldpinch.OUP I assume that it is BAD since it is taking up all of my resources. I follow directions well so if I need to run tests, let me know and I will take it step by step for you. Thank you so much in advance. Kathy

Files like that are usually found in the System Volume Information Folder which is a part of System Restore - the feature that allows you to set points in time to roll back your computer to a clean working state.
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recent Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
When done, rescan again with AVG.
