An unknown Trojan (assuming due to the infections detected by AVG) has infected my pc. I am running XP, use Firefox to browse, and have AVG Free updated and full system scans run.

AVG is finding and cleaning programs, ("Fm9.exe", e.g.) but there are new ones each time I scan.

Symptoms include popup windows, and bogus "antivirus" download popups "antimalware" was one I saw.

I saw another post that mentions "whitesmoketoolbar", this is currently installed on this pc...is it the issue?

I can provide screen shots or whatever is most useful. Please let me know your questions.

THANKS FOR READING!
Jake

P.S. I've been trying to post to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs, but it won't work...am I forbidden for some reason?

I think I put this in the wrong forum by accident. I am looking, but do not see a way to move it. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Thanks,
Jake
