So initially, AVG only detected one instance of this virus(?), and I found an old page somewhere that gave the following instructions, but for a .ACAC or .BIGU version. I don't know if that makes a difference.
1.Physically disconnect from internet and run Windows 10 in Safe Mode.
2. Run Anti-Spyware and save your log; restart in Normal Mode.
3. Reconnect to internet
4. Run Malware Bytes and save your log; restart in Normal Mode
5. Run Gmer and save your log; restart in Normal Mode
6. Run HijackThis and save your log; restart in Normal Mode
I've done all of those (and Gmer threw some error about rootkit something-or-other), but no dice, and then, wouldn't you know it, I got two detections instead of one. In a moment of panic, I uninstalled the two programs I thought AVG said they were liked to (Autodesk Application Manager and Malware Bytes' .exe file), but the detection still pops up whenever I restart. I've heard something about AVG throwing false detections when it comes to Trojans, but I don't know what that means, and the addition of a threat detection worries me. Serves me right for not switching to Avast sooner, I guess.
I run Windows 10, and if at all possible, I'd like to avoid having to restore my computer. I haven't backed it up or created a restore point in a few years--I know, I know, shame on me.
