Good day to all you Gurus,
I have 2 networked computers. The one I use for e-mail and the internet. The other is dedicated to video and graphics work. The only time that I connect this one to the internet is to download updates from sites like Adobe and Corel. Every time I start the machine and go into My Documents I get a Virus Alert from AVG. They are:-
Trojan Horse Downloader Generic3.YHD
Trojan Horse Proxy.LCT
Trojan Horse Proxy.KMA
Trojan Horse Proxy.LOD
Trojan Horse Proxy.LAT.
I have tried downloading Panda FreeScan but when it reaches the screen where you choose what to scan it just hangs.
Can you offer me any advice please?
T.I.A.,
GEORGE.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Have you tried doing your AVG scan in "SAFE MODE"?

AVG Anti-Virus is indicating you have Spyware not a virus. Therefore you have to run Anti-Spyware apps to clear things up.

I have done as requested and posted a HiJackThis file to the appropiate section.
Regarding AVG sending to Quarantine, yes it does but they still keep showing up.

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.

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.

Good luck.
