I opened a site using Google Chrome and a popup (Antivirus 2010) appeared; it told me that my computer was infected with a virus and that wanted me scan my computer, so I let it. After it scanned my PC, another black banner popped up that said something like “Your computer has been infected by spyware....” I closed Antivirus 2010, and its system tray icon disappeared (I do not know when the system tray icon appeared). Then, I tried opening Avast 4.8 Home edition, but it wouldn’t (The Avast! On-access scanner system tray icon still hasn’t disappeared). I went to My Computer, right clicked the icon where Windows was installed and pressed “Scan C:/” using Avast. The program scanned my hard drive for a couple of minutes, removed the viruses and Trojans it found(I was given the option of deleting them or moving the infected files to a vault. I chose the latter). After some time, Avast told me to delete or move this certain file, and when I told it to move the infected file, Avast stopped scanning. I tried using the right click option once more, but it wouldn’t work.
Before I closed Antivirus 2010, I went to the site again where the pop up came from, and Avast told me that JS: Downloader ARG [Trj] was trying to load. I clicked “Abort Connection” immediately.
I’m on Windows XP SP3 Home Edition. My antivirus software is Avast 4.8 Home Edition.
