Hey! I am having virus problems and a friend told me to try you guys. He said that you helped him and you really know what you are talking about.

I have avast antivirus software and it keeps popping up telling me i have a virus on my computer.

Here is the description of virus that avast is telling me i have.....

File name: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\rdriv.sys
malware name: Win32:Trojan-gen. {Other}
Malware type: Virus/Worm
VPS version: 0538-6, 21/09/2005

I keep trying to delete it or "move it to chest" with avast but it keeps popping up!
Does this look familiar to anybody?
Can anybody help me get rid of it?

If you think you still have problems, run these online virus scanners:
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
ewido security suite - offers protection against urgently growing threats like Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware and Keyloggers.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
Spywareblaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.
