Im new here so please bear with me. I have a trojan (see topic title) and I cannot get rid of it.
AVG's resident shield alert highlighted it when i started my PC. I ran a full AVG scan but cant get rid. I then ran Spybot search & destroy scan and it did not pick up on it. Finally I ran Malwarebytes Anti malware on it and that did pick up on a few things but not this particular trojan. I also turned off my system restore but then put it back on as i wasnt confident it was right thing to do.
I use Firefox browser and have Windows XP operating system, alongside this I also have Scotty WinPatrol running in the background. I have not added any programmes recently.
Is there a way I can manually delete this? I had a recent prob with the SDRA (I think thats what it was called) bug and i managed to manually delete that, with some online help, so im pretty confident(ish) that I could do the same with this (if given some step by step guidance).
Here is the full description if what AVG is telling me:
File - C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe
Infection - Trojan horse Generic15.FCT
Result - object is white listed (critical/system file that should not be removed)
Can anyone help?
Please advise if you require any further info but please be aware that you may need to give me guidance if I have to go further into my system to provide this.
