It appears that Antivirus GT has now taken a new turn.
Upon starting your pc / laptop you now get a window with two buttons :-
1. [Get Genuine]
2. [wait. 25sec] - this then changes to continue when counted down (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" but this has left 3 windows system files still infected and non-repairable (with AVG at least)
They all show Trojan horse Adload_r.AKJ
countless runs of AVG 9.0 in both standard and Safe mode were unable to fix these 3 files.
Does anyone know the best way to remove (or replace) these 3 files from a netbook? (bah! no cd drive!! lol)
The netbook will start from USB but I have so far been unable to boot from any USB memory stick.
Many Thanks for any help provided.
