Hello everyone,

I picked up some nasty viruses from carelessly downloading a torrent. I removed one fairly simply, but the other, a Win32 virus, is continually blocked by my Avast. The virus is called Win32:Agent-AKOO [drp], it is an svchost.exe virus, and shows up in different temp files every single time. It is blocked by Avast every 10 minutes in a loop pattern. I tried researching, but couldn't find anything about AKOO, which makes me worry if this is a new virus. I've tried lots of methods (Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, Kalpha, Spyware Terminator) to stop the loop, and they couldn't stop the loop, and after I ran second scans, nothing could be found. Every time I'm connected to the internet, the loop restarts. I've tried going into the Registry Editor, but none of the files I was told to look for were there. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. Please help me.
