I am running avg antispyware. avg anti virus, spybot search and destroy, adaware se and sygate firewall.

I recently stupidly clicked ignore when avg told me there was a posibly threat. and that meant trouble.

I keep getting sygate telling me that ishost.exe is trying to access the network and avg antispyware keeps picking up the following:

Dowloader.purityscan.dc
Downloader.agent.bca
Trojan.agent.vg

no matter how many times i clean it it still keeps coming back. I tried cleaning with system restore off but that did no good. I keep getting popups for a free antivirus scan. But i presume this is the virus/trojan so i cancel it every time.

im fairly amateur at this. but could follow instructions easily.

all help is greatfully recieved

Cheers

Will

ishost.exe is related to a smitfraud infection.

I suggest you follow the generic instructions for using SmitfraudFix in BC's "How to remove the Smitfraud / Generic Zlob".

When done scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions for configuring AVG AS and performing a scan.

Then perform this online Virus scan: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]

Post back if your still having problems afterwards.
