Today I managed to get my computer infected with a trojan horse virus called Agent_r.APX while trying to visit the robyn.com website. When accessing this website a Adobe Acrobat Reader window appeared and in a matter of seconds my AVG Free software reported that a trojan had infected my computer, although at first it reported that it had been dealt with.
After quickly closing my Mozilla Firefox software, disabling my internet-connection as well as closing the AVG report window, a second AVG report window appeared stating that it had encountered the same trojan and also a window stating that taskmgr.exe wants to be granted access to make changes on the computer. I have tried several times denying taskmgr.exe (assuming that it is not the actual taskmgr that is requesting this) but despite my efforts, it keeps asking for permission.
The next thing I did was to do a full scan on my computer, and the result was this:
File Infection Result
C:\Windows\explorer.exe (2244) Trojan horse Agent_r.APX Deleted
C:\Windows\explorer.exe (2244):/memory_03130000 Trojan horse Agent_r.APX Infected
Since this second file of the two still had not been dealt with directly, I tried to at first cure it, then quarantine it, but no success.
The next step was searching for this perticular problem online where I came to find your website. Here I have managed to find a similar thread to my problem (which I'm not sure if it was solved or not): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic419939.html/page__p__2416965__hl__taskmgr__fromsearch__1#entry2416965
I went on to check my C:\user\ where I managed to find the file taskmgr.exe just as in this prior case.
So I took up on where this thread left off and made a SystemLook scan. Below are the results.

Also want to note that I am currently using Windows 7 (ServicePack 1).
(I have also tried to just remove the taskmgr.exe file from C:\User\, it was removed, but an error appeared saying that the task I requested could not be executed over and over again (roughly translated from swedish), probably caused by the virus attempting to contact the infected taskmgr.exe
So, is there anything I could possibly do to solve this problem of mine?
Most appreciative for your help, and hope you can reply to me as soon as possible.
