I have AVG Free Edition. Lately it's been alerting me that a virus was found in the following files: msxp.exe, SYS98.exe, and SearchB.exe. I know that when my computer was infected with a virus in the past, this "SearchB" folder thing keeps appearing on my desktop, and after repeated attempts to delete it from the recycle bin, it keeps popping up. Thing is, I can't find it on my add/remove programs list, and I can't find these other files to remove them, as well. Every time I reboot my computer, AVG alerts me to the viruses and i click "Heal" and it always says "Object Successfully Healed".

What's going on here? :thumbsup:

Download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
Ewido Install and Scan Instructions
The Ewido Full database installer [with all current ewido signature files] can be downloaded from here.

When done perform the following online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component]

Trend Micro Housecall Scan for Internet Explorer
Panda ActiveScan

If the problem still persistes then I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have not been replied as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped.
