and asquared

its free exe is http://download6.emsisoft.com/a2FreeSetup.exe

please download each fully update the definitiosn , reboot into safe mode and run each on a full deep scan; they will produce reports, which you need to please post back on here for the experts to see to identify possible problems for you

could you also please clarify what EXACTLY the AVG report ON its' find' is

where on your computer does it say it has found this entry?

(Edit; depending on how much you have on the computer these full scans CAN take a few hours to complete so be prewarned and prepared for a long scan stint !!)

second edit to clarify link to asquared program

so ; you will need to post back the results from these two scans PLUS that requested by Quietman 7 below

Do this first, then follow up with ruby1's instructions.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • The next screen will ask you to select the drives to scan. Leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Have you tried avast! ? After you install it, you can run a boot time scan that will search for and remove viruses before the operating system even loads up! I prefer the pro version, as it offers more options and can be found for as little as $5 for a 3 years license from companies that are going out of business!

http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZgeekhelp4u

I presume you are unaware that AVG also performs a boot time scan (mine runs each time I boot up)

the thread originator needs to have time to perform the requested scans which will help to determine IF and where an infection might be lurking


To the thread originator, DO you have the AVG antivirus program programed to DO a boot time scan?

to enable this open avg

launch avg control centre/click on the test centre button/look in 'scan selected areas'

at the BOTTOM you should see a section saying 'other settings'

mine is ticked FOR scanning at boot up

meanwhile so as NOT to possibly further confuse you ,

please to the scans requested by Quietman 7 and Ruby 1 and let us know what they find :thumbsup:
