I recently received a message from AVG that

my computer was infected with the trojan backdoor Generic3. I think that my wife accidently downloaded it when downloading a game on the internet. I just spent $300 getting my computer totally fixed last month due to all kinds of issues it was having so I am trying to be very cautious on the internet. I thought my wife was too, but I guess not :thumbsup: .

AVG did not seem to be able to remove (Heal) this or even move this to quarantine. I searched this site for help and found a forum that discusses what might help. Because of this I downloaded gmer and ran the scan under the rootkit tab. I am not sure how to post what it told me (I am not very computer savvy). I did state that some of these files have been manipulated and some are in red type. I guess that I am stuck at this point. How can I get this off my computer?? If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

I just wanted to add the details of what AVG states: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\yvbb01.dll and the virus is Trojan Horse Backdoor.Generic3.CEQ

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Then perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan

Post back if your still having problems afterwards.
