I need the help of the internet after this trojan horse has infected my computer.
As you can see, I have AVG Free, and it's 'object name' is mmsecsvc.exe, the threat being the Trojan horse Ransom_r.CGA
I haven't had anything really happen yet because of it, but it causes me blue screen crashes periodically which annoys me a lot and makes me worried. I have removed it multiple times, but it returns back again.
I downloaded RKill and it displays this:
I do not have Windows Defender on.
I don't believe I have installed anything sketchy in the past days, the only exception being some Adobe Flash Players (ActiveX 25 and NPAPI 25) appearing, but I doubt they are the source of the trojan.
A person I know has told that it could be perhaps AVG attacking Windows, but we aren't sure. I hope this is the right place for my post, I know there's another Trojan and Malware one, but I don't know the difference and assumed It'd be more likely for me to gain a response here. Apologies.
I use Windows 7 Ultimate.
In advance, thanks for your help,
