Hi.
I am new here. I came across this when I goggled Trojan horse agents...

My AVG free 8.0 ran a scan and detected these two "Infections"
I keep getting pop-ups that say this

C:\DocumentsandSettings\Owner\Application Data\MBSMemoryPlugin1635.dll
Trojan Horse Agent.AACL

C:\DocumentsandSettings\Owner\Application Data\MBSMemoryPlugin1635.dll
Trojan Horse Agent.AACL

When the pop-up comes up, I hit remove and it gives me a warning saying it can not be healed.

I read on here to download Malwarebytes' Antimalware......I did. I updated it before I scanned and did everything that was posted to do.

this is what my report says.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.28

Thanks for the reply!

Like I said I am new to all of this.

I saved ATF and restarted into safe mode like you said....
When I was in safe mode though I could not find ATF
I saved it to my desktop.....I did not run it....

I think I did it wrong....

Perhaps it is a simple fix. Move both SAS and ATF icons to the top left of your screen. The when you reboot they will be easy to find.

If alls good and no more signs of infection then,
Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • 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 recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.
