I have problems on my work laptop Windows XP2007 SP2. The default anti virus FPROT for Windows found an 'Eldorado' which I removed but I think it said it was undisinfectable, but this has now gone anyway.
I then used AVG which found and eliminated 5 threats on svchost.exe but now finds 3 tojans which are located by the resident shield and moved to virus vault every time I try to use explorer. (so i cannot use internet as explorer shuts down) Also when i use explorer I get a message saying 'insecure internet activity' which is of course part of the virus.
AVG full scan cannot find the virus, only resident shield.
Gives the following 3 listings:
Trojan horse Generic_c.ABUT
Trojan horse Generice_c.ABUS
Trojan Horse generic_c.ABUU
all located on C:\Documents and Settings\My Username\Application Data\Google\GMail\1t.gif and 3n.gif and 2y.gif respectively.
The process Name is always C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\ixplore.exe
The Process ID changes number every time.
I have also tried Malwarebytes Anti Malware and that gives a clean scan.
Bearing in mind that the problem is on my laptop (i am sending this from desktop)and I cannot use explorer so cannot paste log reports!
