Hi

My friend is running AVG which has detected two viruses-

tinyproxy.exe (Trojan horse)

bolivar28.exe (worm)

She now cannot connect to the internet via Internet Explorer. Reading through various forums it sounds like the issue with connecting to the internet is related to the viruses.

Can anyone recommend what programme to use to remove these viruses? How do I run this programme withoutr connecting to the internet ( can they be downloaded to a USB stick?)

Thanks

Jo

Download Malwarebytes, update it and then put it on a USB Pen drive and run it on your friends machine.
