I currently have AVGfree installed on my computer and has worked flawlessly until now. I downloaded a program from a very trusted site a week ago, everything ran smooth. Until this morning. I started up my Computer, mistyped a web page and Windows Security Alerts have been going off every 3 min or so about this install.exe file located in my temp folder. I scanned my computer with AVG, it found a Trojan Horse Generic 16.BVN. It gives me the option to Heal or move to the vault. I clicked heal, 3 minutes later Windows is telling me again. AVG gave me the same 2 options, so I clicked remove to vault, 3 minutes later, windows is telling me YET AGAIN. Help me please! I searched this virus up online and apparently I am the only one who has got it :thumbsup: I found a generic16.JP or something like that, but not with one with my affix on it.

Any advice is most welcome. and please, make it very simple. I am ok with computers, but dont know terminology very well lol

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer. My name is Computer Pro and I will be helping you with your issues.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

To subscribe, go to your topic, and at the top right hand corner by your first post, click the Options button and then click Track this topic. Then bullet the immediate notification bubble. Finally, press submit.



Lets take a look with Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
Malwarebytes
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

Hi

i had the same warning for AVG. Also I notist that java was activated at the infection came.
I also got the same warnings for Windows Security Alerts asking me to enable protection but after enabling the same messege came up 1 minute after. In my case AVG showed generic 16.BVN as the thred but windows Security Alerts warnings was trojan.win32.agent.dcc, Backdoor.win32.agent.ich, Email_worm.win32.netsky.q, virus.win32hala.a an others.

When full scaning with AVG nothing was detected, and i the downloaden VCleaner from AVG support. That didn't worked.

At the end I reset my system to an earlier state through start-programs-accessories-system tools-systemformation(not sure if it is called that, I'm on danish system).
Now i don't get the warnings any more. I have also tried to locate the Installer(the infection) and can't find it.

I don't know if that is the right solution, if the thred is completely gone. Anyway it stoped the warnings for windows Security Alerts and AVG and i can't located it in the dir.

Pshandrowsky,

Your Malwarebytes version is extremely outdated. Please download the new version from my instructions, and then run a scan following my instructions.

I also had the same warnings as mik-ac. I have not noticed it because I just moved into a new house so I am very busy getting everything all set up and transferred and what not.

I had MBAM installed already on my computer. Like AVG, I assumed it had an automatic update feature. I appologize for the delay. I updated it to its fullest and am running the scan as we speak. I will be bakc in about an hour

Hi Computer Pro,

Thanks for all your help....I too have the Trojan Horse Generic 16.BVN on my computer and will be following along.

As of right now, like Pshandrowsky, I'm scanning my computer.

I'll be back asap to see what develops and share my log/info.

Once more, thanks for your help.

Happy Holidays!

On a side note: my AVG did its usual full computer scan, and found and "removed" the Trojan Horse Generic 16.BVN early this morning around 5:30 am after 3 scans which said my computer was clean.

whats the next step boss?
