Trojan in registry

  PARIS/FALLS/04 07:12 10 Jul 2004

A friend of mine has just discovered she has a trojan in her registry she has AGV but has been lately been getting sent the virus in emails any suggestions on how to get rid of the trojan without having to format her hard drive and what she can get to scan her emails for this in the future. Sorry i dont know what operating system she has if you need this info i would have to email her and ask for it if its required.

click here and try some of the links given in my first response

adaware, spybot then install spywareblaster.

Also advise use of a firewall, I use sygate.

good luck, and always create a restore point before making changes (assuming she has XP)

a2 squared also in that thread, thanks for the link you provided in another post, I tried it yesterday and it found a couple of trojans the others had missed.

If the name of the trojan is known try this

Go to START/RUN/ and type in regedit.
Click on FIND
Type in the name of the beast[trojan]
When it comes up right click and delete.

This may not remove all elements but bashes it enough to to make it quiet.

I have found the Bazooka program from click here to be very good at finding and dealing with Trojans. Full instructions are given to deal with the registry, etc.

I had this exact problem. I had a trojan, but after AVG had removed it, it kept popping up in the registry. I got Spybot Search and Destroy, which got rid of it. I tried to manually remove it from the registry, but the key actually didn't exist.

Go to McAfee, it's not the only security site mind, and download the "stinger" removal tool.Stop your p.c.s system restore utility and run the stinger tool it may just save you a lot of time and trouble.Good luck!

Link to Stinger. Don't forget to turn off system restore before running it. Keep checking site every so often for updates.
