This is my first post on this site, and I turn to you in desparation!

I'm not sure if I have two problems, or one problem manifesting itself in two different ways, which is why I have combined this post.

I have somehow gained a programme named "Antivirus 2008" which is constantly warning me that I have 688 viruses on my computer. When this initially started, I ran my free copy of AVG. This warned me of the presence of Trojan Horses, but it was unable to remove them. The full version of AVG would, I was assured, sort the problem. In a moment of madness, I then purchased the full AVG8 programme.

On running AVG8 it informed me of the presence of a huge number of trojan horses, and offered to heal them. I accepted that option, and was informed that the trojans had been healed (or maybe it was removed/sent to the vault - to be honest, I'm getting a bit punch drunk now, and I'm not really sure)

Following this, AVG "Resident Shield Alerts" keep popping up every 15-20 seconds warning me of more Trojan horses. When I click "Remove Threats" or "Heal", sometimes I get a warning reply "Some files could not be found." Sometimes I don't. Either way, it doesnt make any difference - the next warning pops up about 20 seconds later. This is true whether I tick the "power user" box, or not.

The exact details given by AVG are :

File Name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ppchcgq1j0elfv.exe
Threat Name: Trojan horse Downloader.FraudLoad.p
Detected on Open
Process Name: C:programfiles\rhclq1j0e1fv\rhclq1j0e1fv.exe
Process ID: 2828

With regards to the Antivirus XP 2008, which I think has been the root cause of the problem, I have tried "START" "Control Panel" "Add/Remove Programmes", but get the error message, "An error occurred while trying to remove . It may have been already un-installed. Would you like to remove AntivirXP08 from the Add/Remove Programmes list?"

Any advice would be appreciated. I am not, by the way, the smothest operator, so any advice needs to be prtty much key stroke by keystroke!

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 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 Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked 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.
  • 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 may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
