Trojan Horse Please Help

  thetrickster 08:35 31 Oct 2009

Hello. I have recently found a Trojan Horse on my home p.c. It is affecting both internet explorer and firefox. When I open firefox I get pop ups and at times it just hangs and i have to restart. I have used avg 8.5 to clean the computer and reinstalled firefox, but I am still having the same problem. Could somebody tell me the correct procedure to clean the system and get rid of this annoying problem. Not sure where it has come from. Is there any way of finding out, and maybe preventing this problem in the future.

Download the FREE version of malawarebytes from click here When installed update it and then select deep scan. Run and delete all it finds. You could also scan in safe mode as well but do a quick scan.

Two days ago Malawarebytes reported 12 trojan.ransom attacks in my C:\Documents and settings\myname\local\application data\google folder. These were successfully removed by MAWB. Dony know how they got in through my AVG and Comodo.
