Hello. I am having trouble getting rid of this trojan horse and/or malware. My antivirus, Avast, will notify me in the bottom right corner of my screen that it has blocked a trojan horse (win32:Atraps-PF [Trj]) and malware (win32:malware-gen). These notifications will pop up every 2-5 minutes. They tell me "no further action is required," however Avast's virus chest is being loaded up every time I am notified. When I scan with Malwarebytes, I quarantine/delete Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner, but it will keep reoccurring when I go to scan again. I'm guessing Avast and Malwarebytes are blocking the same thing?

I have looked on the forums, and it seems people have had similar problems. I have tried doing what has helped others, but I have had no luck.

Thank you in advance to whoever who can help me. I cannot get rid of this thing!!!

By the way, I have Windows 7.

Welcome aboard Posted Image

This type of infection will require elevated help.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.
