It seems to have developed a new method where it brings up a confirmation window upon startup with two button options.
1. "Get Genuine"
2. "wait. 25sec" then changes to continue (this delay does get longer everytime you startup the PC / Laptop)
I have found that the exe file "AntivirusGT.exe" is in c:\program Files\AVG\AntivirusGT.exe and is easily removable
The only problem is that when you remove this program, the next time you start up the PC, explorer.exe is never started. (and cannot be started even from Ctrl-Alt-Del then start "new-Task")
I have used Combofix to remove this "Program" and this left 3 windows system files still infected and non-repairable (with AVG at least)
countless runs of AVG were unable to remove these 3 viruses.
I now have a friends laptop with the exact same Malware infection but this one is running Windows 7 64 bit.
I have two questions here (I perhaps should have started two threads!)
1. how can I remove the infections from the system files on the XP laptop?
2. what is the best way to start removing infections on the Windows 7 Laptop?
Many Thanks for any help provided.
