I hope you let AVG quarantine or remove whatever it found.

If you can, run the online scan in the link below and let it quarantine whatever it finds.

Download the trial version in the link below and allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

After doing the above, post a Hijack This log by following the instructions in the link below.

When I would install Hijackthis Log, McAfee tells me that there is found following virus: W32/Generic.worm!p2p. So I can't install it. What should I do?

Are you saying that you have downloaded Hijack This but cannot install it?
Mcafee claims to be able to remove the worm you mentioned in your last post. Look at the info in the link below.

Did you use the programs I mentioned in the first post?

I can't install hijack log. I already used the programs you mentionned. Maybe I have to delete McAfee and then try to install hijack log.

Run Mcafee antivirus in "safe mode". Rename Hijack This "Brussel Sprouts". If this doesn't work try turning off real time protection in McAfee. Good luck o you.

Are you running both AVG Free and McAfee? The concern with using more than one anti-virus program is due to conflicts that can arise when both are in real-time mode simultaneously. Anti-virus software componets insert themselves into the operating systems core and using more than one can cause instability, crash your computer, slow performance and waste system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, they both may try to update their defintion databases are the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.

Each anti-virus will often interpret the activity of the other as a virus and there is a greater chance of them alerting you to "False Positives". If one finds a virus and then the other also finds the same virus, both programs will be competing over exclusive rights on dealing with that virus. Each anti-virus will attempt to seize the offending file and quarantine it. If one finds and quarantines the file before the other one does, then you encounter the problem of both wanting to scan each other's zipped or archived files and each reporting the other's quarantined contents. This can lead to a repetivite cycle of endless alerts that continually warn you that a virus has been found.

Since you were able to download hijackthis, please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

I check with AVG Free and McAfee because McAfee is not up to date, he doesn't recognize the new versions. That's the reason why I check with those 2 anti-virusprograms.
Thank you for the advice

Either update McAfee and remove AVG or keep AVG and remove McAfee. Do this before posting a hijackthis log.

Do not bump your Hijack This log that you have posted. Wait for the Hijack This expert to respond. Glad you were able to post the log.

MFDnSC has already responded with instructions to the log you posted here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/75251/wormvbso/

At some point, you will be provided instructions to remove one of your anti-virus programs so just wait until then.

Yes. Follow MFDnSC's instructions exactly as posted in your thread in the HJT forum. When done post back in that same thread. Since you are getting the assistance you need, I am closing this topic to avoid confusion.
