Trojan Horse

  Daisy22 15:17 16 Mar 2008

My OS is XP, I keep getting a message when I start up with flashes up with my anti spyware saying Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic 7.GT

When I go into the AVG programme it tells me the back up copy infected, it is 9kb it is not healable and given the following name of trojan/virus qgwok.t.exe

I've tried a few different anti spyware programmes to see if it gets rid of it, but it doesn't and now the PC is behaving oddly, like not shutting down when I go into "switch off", and sometimes it won't start up, its all very annoying.

Can I get rid of this nasty little thing? If so, how please?

Where does AVG say it is located?

Do you mean to say that AVG reports that the infection is in a restore point/file? If so, you'll have to turn off system restore to delete any infected restore points, rescan with AVG and if given the all clear, reactivate system restore and create a new, clean, restore point.

The AVG virus vault says I have 81 infected files
they are listed in:

c\doc & settings\user qawokt.exe........then there are many like this all with different user nos but all exe files


c\system volume info\restore with a number listed


c\windows system 32\rmwxwo.exe

none of this means anything to me

I have also run windows defender and another anti spyware but neither found anything

My AVG antivirus says the system is clear and running normally
