Trojan "Downloader.Siboco.B"

  oddgeezer 17:38 06 Jun 2004

Recently ran AVG antivirus and it came up with a couple of trojans that it couldn't delete. I managed to delete one in safe mode, but I'm left with one called "Siboco.B" otherwise File - C:\Windows\Temp\7082808388.tmp I sent this to the recycle bin in safe mode, emptied the bin & rebooted, but the little blighter keeps reappearing. Sometimes when opening a favourite or switching to another webpage, another host page appears with references to a download accelerator. I'm fairly convinced the two are close friends.

Ideas gratefully received.

Delete all your restore points in system restore...start-programmes-accessories-system tools-system restore. Reboot and turn it back on , also create a new restore point.

Thanks VoG & Gandalf. I seem to have cleared the problem after updating AVG.
