[/b][font=Georgia][size=3] I used an online virus/spyware scanner, the results said that there was a threat in this file/folder "Win32:CTX", not pc savvy whatsoever. Would someone please tell me what exactly is "Win32:CTX'?

Thanks,

Cane

See Virus.Win32.CTX.10853 and W32.Dengue. Did the online scan remove this file?

[b][size=5] No it did not remove this virus. How do I get rid of it? And how did I get it?

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"? If so and you were not successful then do this.

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions and read the User Manual.

Then perform another online Virus scans. I'm not sure which one you tried already but here is list:
Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
Panda ActiveScan <- Accept default settings. (does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.)
F-Secure Online Scanner <- Be sure to follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation.
BitDefender Online Virus and Malware Scan <- Add a check by "Autoclean".
eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner. <- "Cure" whatever is found, manually delete what it can't cure.
Be sure to read the eTrust Antivirus Scanner Help Guide before scanning.

Read "How did I get infected in the first place?" by Tony Klein and "The Ten Most Dangerous Things Users Do Online".
