First off thank you all for providing a support forum like this. I hope we can take care of this problem together.
So, I recently opened a link to groupalia thinking it was a similar product to groupon. After signing up to receive an e-mail I opened their introduction e-mail and clicked on the link to their page. I immediately was hit with a trojan horse that has been persistent ever since.
I looked for tutorials online to eliminate the virus. I disabled system restore, downloaded Malwarebytes' anti-maleware and ran it. Then ran it in safe mode. No changes. My virus protection is just the AVG Free Version (Peace Corps Volunteer = no $$) and it doesn't seem capable of getting rid of the it either.
I'm not sure what information is needed for you all to help me solve this, but here is what I've got:
File Name: C:\USERS\USER\APPDATA\LOCAL\TEMP\141.exe
Threat Name: Win32/Injector.AAC
When I quarantine it another one immediately appears. This is usually different from the previous. For example now I see:
File Name: C:\USERS\USER\APPDATA\LOCAL\TEMP\032.exe
Threat Name: TR/Dropper.Gen
I have tried manually going into this folder and deleting all unfamiliar application files but this has also not helped.
My computer is a Toshiba NB305. Because it is a netbook it does not have a CDROM Drive and I do not have an external one. I do not have a system restore USB.
I am not by any means a computer expert but I used linux for a while and am comfortable following more complex instructions.
I hope I've been detailed enough, again thank you in advance for the help
