I use the McAfee antivirus program and it has recently told me that I have the downloader-acv trojan and it cannot be deleted. Lately my computer has an error message saying "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience," frequently.

I recently installed the Zone Alarm firewall program and noticed a couple of things trying to connect to the internet including CMSystem.exe, system.exe, ADP123.exe, and more. After doing some research on the internet, I've found that these are most likely related to a virus on my computer.

I also noticed, after reading forums, something called HijackThis. I didn't want to download and run this without advice from someone who has experience removing this virus.

I have never had a virus on my computer. I believe with good instruction, I can get rid of this. Please reply to this post if you feel you can help me.

I currently use Windows XP, AOL Dialup, Zone Alarm Firewall, and McAfee Antivirus.

If that doesn't help, then:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
