I started my computer the other day and everything seemed to be good, than I noticed and recognized the startup and login sound happened again  None of my installed scanners( Norton360 or MBAM) picked up anything.  I used Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 and found a threat called:  HEUR.Trojan.Win32.Generic. This looks to be attached to /.../Spybot-Spyware-Doctor.Install.rw.exe I suspect that this is the cause of my problems or possibly just a part of a lager one. I also cannot find this file in the Explorer Window or by searching for it with CLI. Need help with removal, most scanners that I have tried are not finding any security threats.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I see this is reported by Kaspersky to be a false positive under certain conditions..

I recommend taking a a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Since this has happen I have disabled my network connection and using the computer offline until I can fix the problem.Will this be a problem?

 

I forgot to mention that I quarantined  the threat HEUR.Trojan.Win32.rw.exe.  will this make a difference?  The Rescue disk was a LiveCD that is used as part of Alarmings.
