Hi There
Feeling a bit like Helen of Troy, but I kid you not - my face would sink 1000 battleships, not launch them!

Got myself a new PC running WindowsXP Home (Win98 Daddy not very pleased!)
Had it 5 weeks and the Viral sharks are now swimming around in shoals whenever I go on the Web.
Have managed to repel/remove quite a few with AVG but have just got the dreaded Backdoor.Agent.2.H which AVG has said that it has healed.
During it's scan the log reveals that several files are reported as "Cannot open; not checked!"
The log shows the files affected reside in the following folders:-
C:\Documents and Settings\My Name\NTUSER.dat. .....

C:\Documents and Settings\My Name\Local Settings\ ....

C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\NTUSER.dat ....

C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local SE .....

C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\NTUSER .....

C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkSevice\Local .....

C:\Program Files\AOL 8.0\IDB\apps.lst
C:\Program Files\AOL 8.0\IDB\main.idx
C:\Program Files\AOL 8.0\IDB\spool.lst
C:\Program Files\AOL 8.0\IDB\style.lst
C:\Program Files\AOL 8.0\IDB\sysnew.lst
C:\Program Files\AOL 8.0\IDB\toolbar.lst

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{9A609DA... Trojan Horse Backdoor.Agent.2.H Healed

C:\SoftwareDistribution\EventCache\{.......
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM.LOG

This type of event has not been reported before - have the Trojans altered the working of AVG or my computer somehow?
Am I still in deep water with this problem?

What's to be done to rectify this PLEASE???

Yours waiting hopefully

halfpenny - did you know that AVG have a stand-alone removal tool (free) which is said to remove this trojan? Must be worth a try click here

Many greatful thanks to the repondents to this thread, I have only just read the mail and downloaded the recommended files - have been out all day at an elderly Aunt's so couldn't read the mail earlier

Being very new to XP I had not realised about the System Restore manipulation, makes sense when I think about it!

Will report back when I have had a go with your chosen solution(s).
