Hello, my son's laptop is a quagmire of problems. He is using Adwil's Avast antivrus program and every time at startup it detects 2 trojans...
Win32: Agent-LAP and Win32: Tiny-IF
He runs XP Pro. But it may be SP1 (i just started uploading updates and patches)
I delete the LAP and Tiny each time they are found at startup, and an Avast virus search finds nothing. But with the next startup, i get the two error messages, first for Tiny and then for Agent-LAP
Spybot is also messed up and I cannot seem to get it off. the computer.
Have tried to download Ad-aware. but am having trouble getting clean downloads....i think it is the computer and not my internet system at home. other PCs at home are working fine.
I downloaded another Malware program that had a 30 day full version free trial. and it found 235 infections, mostly in cookies (i got rid of all the cookies) but found two instances of the Tiny program. I hit the remove button but was not quite sure it removed anything.
i know i have a lot more cleaning to do on this computer but would love to at least start by getting rid of the Tiny and Agent-Lap.
With many thanks.
