I'm new here... hope you can help.
On booting up, my AVG scanner flashed a screen saying:
Virus found: Trojan Horse PSW.Agent.CCI
found in: C:\windows\system32\mssync.20.exe
I managed to note down these details before the screen left, but when I do a virus scan nothing shows up. I checked the vault to see if it was already removed, but no. I looked up the file in ssystem 32 folder, it's there, but wont let me delete it. Also, there's another file mssync20.sys Don't know if that's related. I'm not sure if it's safe to delete these files anyway !!!
Previous to this AVG alert, I have been having blue screen problems over last few days. Various fatal system errors and one stating: Driver IRQL not less or equal. Telling me to uninstall new hardware and software. Don't know if this is all related. I had run several system scans to find a virus, but nothing showed up.
I'm running PC in safe mode at the moment to look into it. Bear in mind I am not really a techie! Just a curious newbie!
Any thoughts anyone?
Oh, P.S. Just completed another AVG scan in safe mode, with all hidden folders opened. The mssync.20.exe folder result stated 'READING ERROR'. ???? Does that mean it is a virus with some sort of block in it to prevent virus scanning?
