I have never had a virus in my computer and today, my McAfee scan indicated that I have this virus and it is unable to quarantine or delete it. I cannot get any assistance from McAfee as I am not fully literate on their tutorial as support. I went online and purchased Trojan Remover 6 and this also has failed. Please HELP!!! I cannot afford to be using my computer with this virus. HOW CAN I REMOVE IT? Thank you.

:thumbsup: to BC viejo.

Update your McAfee anti-virus then reboot in safe mode and run the scan there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here:
Safe Mode

If that fails you can run online scans from a variety of sources:
Here are some links to free online Anti-Virus scans. They do take some time to load and run and in some cases you can only use Internet Explorer, with ActiveX enabled, to access them but they are an excellent support for your existing anti-virus program.

Trend Micro online scan "housecall" - http://housecall.antivirus.com/

Panda Active Scan online - http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
Internet Explorer only. Requires email address. Requires Active-X components to be installed. Approx 12MB download.

BitDefender online scan - http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Internet Explorer only. Must agree to a EULA. Need to allow installation of an Active X component.Some of the options are not clearly explained.

Security Advisor (?) - http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx

Trend Micro Housecall - http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/enterprise...call_launch.php
(European version, supports Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox and Opera)

If that does not work then you can submit an HJT log to our expert team of analysts:

Downlaoder-ACV is a trojan, not a virus.

Use the following scans using Internet Explorer (the scans depend on Axtive X which is not present on Mozilla based browsers)



Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:

After you run those (set to fix what they find), I suggest you download Hijack This and post the log it creates in our Hijack This Forum:

Follow the instructions on the following links explicitly.
