When I turned on my computer today, I noticed a file called "video" on my desktop that was not there before. I deleted the file.
Avira then detected TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2, and prompted me to quarantine it. I did so, and then rebooted. I ran an Avira scan afterward, and 3 more TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2 trojans and one TR/Kazy.2471.7 trojan was detected. I moved these to quarantine as well. In my web history, there are a whole bunch of weird site names that I've never visited before.
This is the second time in the past month that Avira has detected a trojan on start up, along with strange icons appearing on my desktop and some inappropriate sites that I didn't visit appearing in the web history.
Any help is appreciated.
