last night i was online and avg warned that a trojan horse downloader had been detected. It then asked to scan the computer and 1 virus was detected. It then asked what would i like to do and it recomended putting it in the virus vault a it couldn't be deleted, so i selected this. It then informed me that this also isn't possible because i have the free edition and then it said that it is still present on the hard drive. I also have zone alarm installed and my question is can this harm anything and what should i do next.
i also used system restore, thinking this will cure it but i don't think it does.the other problem now is because it couldn't help and isolate the virus, when i scan the hard drive, it doesnt pick it up.
you could press ctrl/alt/del look in the box for somethin fishy and end task,or type msconfig in the run box goto start up tab and look in there cant see what AVG bieng free version should matter i have it and it has sent things to vault for me before.As you have ZA look in program controll see if and thin in there that shouldnt be ,need the trojon name really lol
AVG can't touch your system protected files so you've got to turn off System Restore to flush the cache[You'll lose your restore points as a side efect].Then do an online check at Trend.When/if you get the allclear re-enable System Restore.
