Hey guys,


I'm wondering if I have some form of malicious infection. Every so often, I get a collection of active guard warnings from my Avira AntiVir. They list a series of files that are goopdateres, and stating that they are TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen3 Trojans.












Are the files that pop up, and if I attempt to delete or deny access, the pop-up warning is immediately replaced by a new one. It is possible to get them to stop coming up after persistent denial/deletion. However they always resurface almost a set time later.


I ran a a few scans, using different spywhere detection/removal programs. Which hasn't really helped the situation. I got to reading around online about the file name. Some sources are saying that it's just google updater essentially getting frisky with the actives guards security limits, causing false positives. I'd like to actually have a professional opinion on the matter, though. Any advice/help that anyone could offer to clear this up would be very much appreciated.


Thank you!

Alright, so I got around to all of these step. Except after the last step, my computer rebooted. Once I hit the login screen to enter my password, my keyboard and mouse cease to function. They work in the BIOS menu, and I checked to ensure that my USB port were enabled at boot-up. Which they were, but I just can't login anymore, essentially. Any advice you could offer would be appreciated.

So Adware cleaner has caused this issue, try a system restore from the recovery console.

Sorry for my slow responses, I'm really busy with work lately. So I don't find the time to act on this very quickly.

Well, I looked at the link informing me of how to do a restore. However, I'm currently using Vista (I know :/), and I lack an installation CD. I think I may have a recovery partition on my HDD though. I tried to boot into restore mode and select the last "good" configuration option. It lead to the same results. I am still stuck with not mouse or keyboard use at the login screen. I think I saw another recovery option besides the last good configuration one. However I didn't want to use it, because I'm not totally sure how that one in particular works.
