Hi, AVG is suddenly picking up this trojan - no idea where it arrived from suddenly. Pops up constantly, and web is very slow, with a couple crashes, network locking up first. Superantispyware and malwarebytes anti-malware both ineffective. I found an online guide to remove the trojan - http://blog.teesupport.com/remove-trojan-horse-generic31-apje-virus-step-by-step/ , but none of the files it mentioned were there. I'm running Windows 7 on my laptop.

Based on a similar topic I found (which I didn't want to gatecrash) I've scanned with TDSS killer, aswMBR, and am just running ESET online scanner. Can post results if that's the right thing.

Any help hugely appreciated! Many thanks,

Pete

What files and in what location were found by AVG?
I've seen quite a few false positives from AVG lately.

Well, maybe that was it. After running ESET overnight (which picked up one tiny piece of adware), everything's been fine today. Complete AVG scan was clean, and there's nothing in the event log. Completely unusuable yesterday, but no sign at all today. Thanks for the reassurance! And hopefully it'll turn out to be the same for other posters. I'll post back if it turns up again. Thanks.
