Hi, I have a trojan (or false positive idk tbh) that's letting me neither run firefox, gives me a popup message of "Please close any open windows of Firefox to start up a new app or restart comp" so i restarted didn't work. So i uninstall, delete everything mozilla/firefox related, and reinstall only to have it say the same thing.

A day later i attempt to start up itunes and AVG goes haywire saying itunes is loaded with viruses (specifically that small.bog). so i scan, remove all infected and it didn't work. did the same to itunes i did with firefox (uninstall/delete) and to install i dl'd a fresh copy of itunes from their site and go to install when avg started going haywire again so... googled this stuff and was lead to this site.

i've already ran both gooredfix and combofix 3 times and still running into the same problems.

aside from not being able to open either firefox or itunes my system is showing no other symptoms at the moment.

Hi, Don't delete or quarantine the files that will break your iTunes install. The files are a False positive that AVG needs to amend in their next update..
You are NOT at risk. these are not trojans.

I found an Apple workaround till the update.

Open your AVG
Go to Resident Shield.... Manage Exceptions....Add Path
Add C:\Program Files\iTunes and C:\Program Files\iPod
