Posted 07 October 2010 - 06:40 PM

I picked up a trojan called "Trojan Horse Generic19.AHPV" on 6 Oct 2010.
Ot at least I BELIEVE I have. I first learned of this via an alert from AVG
Free's "Resident Shield" function. I realize I should have done an immediate
screen grab of this, but I didn't.

What I remember is the name was repeated three or four times in the
alert, and there was no way to remove it. Asking AVG to remove it resulted
in no action at all.

Original symptoms were that XP ran slower and slower following a reboot until doing
anything at all was virtually impossible. It seemed to run normally immediately
after a reboot, then performance degraded rapidly. Today the machine appeared
to run at normal speed but I discovered Firefox is DEFINITELY hijacked. I get
sent to random sites that have nothing to do with my requests.

My situation has similarities to the one experienced by user sunshine77,
who is currently being helped by DaChew. However it appears I have just the
one trojan, and neither of "trojanhorse generic19.AFIV" or "trojanhorse
generic19.AGZP". (Yet...)

I have a healthy laptop running XP so I d/led the three programs required by your
procedure and transferred them over to the infected PC via a thumb drive. I
was able to accomplish all the procedure steps. Before I did that, I
disconnected the PC from the internet entirely and shut down Skype (which
could not connect regardless).

Note that I have not gotten the warning from AVG again (or a spoofed error)
since that first time.

One other symptom that may be important. Every time I stop Firefox, I get
an error window with the following in it:

firefox.exe - Application Error (in blue header area)
The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000".
The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program.

I'm well backed-up, so in a pinch I can just roach out the HDD and re-install
XP. In that event (which I'd obviously like to avoid!), will a reformat kill off
this sort of virus?

Thanks for your reply. I'm usually extremely careful in my computer ops, and this is the
first time since I began interacting with the formal Web (I started on BBSs in the early 80s)
that I've ever gotten a computer virus.

I even have a pretty good idea of when it happened. After a particularly obnoxious spate of
spam from one source, I decided to do some exploring with WHOIS and complain through
SpamCop and also directly. I'm almost sure I hit a bad link due to inattention.

I always maintain complete backups of critical data, so a couple days ago I decided to
reformat and re-install XP Pro. So far, so good, but I'm watching carefully for anything
suspicious. The rebuild included deleting and re-installing the system partition.

My research tells me that this type of infection can take residence in the BIOS, which is
a particularly nasty concept.

The rebuild went fine. The one strange problem I've gotten so far is due to an interaction
between AVG 2011 and ZoneAlarm. The AVG people already know about that and are addressing

Would you happen to know anything else more specific about Trojan Horse Generic19.AHPV,
since it seems to be the problem I had? I'd sure like to know whether a straight re-build of
the OS can be considered sufficient.

I'll save your directions via screen prints for the future, and thanks much for your help.

Generic19.AHPV, is a generic routine to pick up several different families of virus so I can't be sure which one you had, the RKUnhooker would have given me more info to that

The virus I suspect you had don't live in the bios, but in the MBR

as long as you formated the computer then the MBR was rewriten and the virus is gone.
