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.
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!
