I am trying to help a friend get this compputer back to a useable state. AVG has popped up three times and said it found a trojan. When I try to move it to the "virus Vault" it says in was unsuccessful. If I search the hard drive it can't find the file. Any ideas anyone?

Get Avira or Avast antivirus. Then use one of them to scan.

AVG is no longer legit. I heard they supported p2p...

AVG is working just fine on all 4 of my personal computers. I don't believe the problem is there. I don't use social networking sites and P2P programs.

OK, I seem to have got it fixed. I reinstalled Window IE8 because you can't remove it or I would have. I haven't seen the AVG popup again. All seems well so we can close this.
:thumbup2:
And what's all this about AVG not being any good now?

It happened three or four times.

It (AVG) popped up with Threat Found.

A trojan was found in the open (?)

The file was [Obfustat.UMQ]

After reloading it hasn't happened again. The reason I went to IE8 is that the IE8 desktop ICON also disappeared.

Just so you know that this Malware is designed mainly to steal passwords. It is a Hupigon and Hupigon is a family of backdoor Trojans. You should change all especially any financial..

Removing the browser may have stopped a symptom but not necessarily the infection.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image


NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.

OK Boopme, I am running that on the machine that I was working on. I guess the good news here is that the owner is pretty much a "newbie" to computers. I think the younger kids in the house 10-12 yrs old have been the ones fooling with it. There are no passwords I can find other than one Facebook account and I didn't get any complaints about a Hacked Facebook account. They don't even have an email account set up on it. I did remove several useless "free game" and free offer sites. I ran all the regular stuff I use, Malwarebytes, superantispyware, loaded AVG. I found a lot of stuff and cleaned that up. Let's see what ESET finds.

I'll post the results when it's done.

OK Boopme, The scan found no infections. Is this a good tool to have in general. I guess the other things I downloaded and ran did the job. Soap
