Bit of a computer newbie here, but I can usually fix most problems. However, after running Spybot and AVG multiple times and once in safe mode, there is one pesky thing I can't get rid of: QDown. Spybot continues to show it (find it) but it cannot delete it. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this or can offer me any advice. I don't have Hijackthis, which I see is a popular tool and was hoping to avoid using it but if the general consensus is that I need to get it then I guess I've got some reading/learning ahead of me. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

AVG Anti-Spyware has been detecting qdown variants for a while now and usually is successful at cleaning it out.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Next, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5.
Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions for running a scan in safe mode.
