Hi,

I ran Avg Antivirus and it reported 18 viuses out of which 17 were healed. 'Win32/CryptExe' is what it's called and C:\WINDOWS\system32\setup_78318.exe is the pathway.I'd post my Hijackthis log , but it's against the rules. I'm not very good with computers and I don't know the first thing about how to remove it ( I thought the antivirus would do that!) so I haven't tried anything yet and any help would be appreciated .thanks...

Try running AVG in Safe Mode; this step may allow it to quarantine the virus. If it cannot remove it, please post the exact error message AVG provides.
Thanks,
John
