AVG and Lop virus

  exdragon 14:21 25 Feb 2008

Hi, my AVG has just found 4 incidences of this and has moved them to the Virus Vault. They are shown as being in one of my ScanSoft/PaperPort folders.

Do I just delete them from the Virus Vault, and will this then remove them from their PaperPort folder?
Or do I need to delete the specific folders manually?

Should I then run some other type of cleaner, please?
Your help would be appreciated.

Hi leave them in your vault for a few days and then if your computer is running OK delete them

Right click delete

You could also do a scan with SAS Superantispyware

The free version/ click here

Lop has been around for a long time now and most antispyware and anti virus programs will shift this.
However there are many variants of LOP and can take some time for complete removal.

Try SAS as mfletch suggest but i think you may need to use Hijackthis to remove further registry entries.

A few programs combined with manual registry editing/removal should sort your problem.

Like ive said,if SAS does not cure your problem,try this click here plenty to start with.

Also if you have just downloaded Messenger Plus I would remove it.

Thank you - I'll try SAS. I haven't got Messenger Plus, just the ordinary one, which I guess is ok?
