I'm running AVG Free 8.5 on Windows XP Home. This morning, I used it to track down and remove two Trojan horse viruses. There was a third that a slow scan found later on. Trojan Horse Rootkit-Pakes.U. It was infecting the white-listed file atapi.sys. I recognize no negative activity on my computer YET, however I have read horror stories with this baby as the big bad villain. I would appreciate any and all advice I could get. I have the installers for several programs at the ready and will be able to download any others that I might not already have on hand.
I appreciate the time and effort it takes to help someone out of a situation like this, and thanks in advance.
