AVG virus software detected this trojan, and was unable to clean.

Files affected: C:\WINDOWS\system32\smss.exe

ouviewer.dll can be removed/vaulted, but when that is done the internet connectivity to websites is severed... by restoring the file in safe mode, internet connectivity is restored but the virus file is obviously back.

I have posted a HJT log in the HJT forum, but thought Id see what anyone knows about this. Ive googled it and cannot find any references to psw.generic2 and ouviewer.dll that has given me any information

Welcome to BC :thumbsup:

Since you have posted an HJT log it is important that you DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
