Sorry to be a bore about virus's but I seem to have acquired one somehow, despite being pretty security conscious with an up-to-date firewall and a virus scanner.
It started yesterday 1/7/04 when I booted up - "Installation Error" then tried to connect to the internet [Zone Alarm alert advisor also, to which I denied connection].
When I run my updated AVG it detects a "Trojan horse Downloader.Rameh.E" but clicking the 'move to virus vault' button only gives me an okay box that says "File C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ATPARTNE.DLL can not be removed". If I can delete it to the recycle bin why is it not removable by the AVG?
There is no reference to 'Rameh.E' on the AVG database, nor on any of the main antivirus websites, such as Sophos.com.
What annoys me about AVG is that their software detects and names a virus that isn't even in their own database!! Pretty lame or what.
Symptoms: Webpage's open in a default size window that I have to open to full size every time, and one of my web pages open's for a short duration says unable to load then redirects the browser elswhere.
Adaware & Spybot scans report clean results.
Any insight or advice to remedy this annoying thing would be very welcome.
