Unable to remove a threat

  [email protected] 10:21 02 May 2014

I run Win7.During an AVG scan it turned up a threat called MalSign.Generic.834.However,AVG was unable to remove it as the threat repeatedly replicated itself. Has anyone come across this threat and if so how is it removed permanently?

I had a similar problem. They are called a PUP.I could not remove it. I got on to Norton and they took over my computer and removed it. It meant going into the registry.I was impressed.

Try running your AVG scan in Safe Mode. Most malware infections can't run in that mode so AVG stands a better chance of eradicating this pest successfully.
