A couple fo days ago I got a trojan warning on Avira. I didn't take a note of it but since then Avira cannot complete a scan and hangs at about 42%. I'm pretty sure I know the folder it gets stuck at, and now my computer won't let me delete it (c:/ProgramData/PRICache).
I've uninstalled Avira, run the Avira registry cleaner tool and reinstalled but it still stalls.
I've run an avira scan in safe mode and completes without any problem and finds nothing. I've also ran a host of other programmes but none of them find anything. These include:
- Kapersky virus removal tool
- Malwarebytes anti rootkit
- Malwarebytes anti malware
- farbar recory scan tool
- security check
- spybot search and destroy
I'm concerned that something has got onto my computer for Avira to flag a trojan and stopped it working properly and is now hiding away somewhere. I have no problem reformatting hdd and reinstalling windows but I'm not even sure if that will definitely get rid of it.
Thanks for any help
