I run a Windows XP Media Edition OS, and it's been working fine. However, my AVG 8 that has been paid for has started to blurt out the same message about a Fake Codec Trojan. Even when I visit this site, it always pop up an error message.
File Name: www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/jscripts/ips_ipsclass.js
Threat Name: Exploit Trojan Fake Codec
Process Name: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
Process ID: 1840
Object is Hidden
When I try to delete it, AVG requests a reboot but the problem persists. Also, since I suspected rootkits and Spyware, I've used Gmer to try to find it, but it doesn't appear to be in the root folder. I've also tried SpyDoctor, but it was ineffective. I don't use P2P software (no really) and I haven't downloaded any EXE files in three days. Anyone can help me? Nothing malicious has happened to my computer yet, but the messages everytime I visit a website is highly annoying. Thank you
