Cant get rid of Swizzor Trojan Horse

  AngieP 22:35 17 May 2004

My PC is continually being infected with Swizzor which AVG heals or moves to virus vault. Today it is in a Program Files called Great Roam Dumb, which AVG cannot remove or quarantine. I have maually searched for the file but it wont let me remove it. Ad aware cannot scan either because as soon as it gets to the infected file it stops and warns me to remove the virus. Has anyone any ideas on how to get rid of this and how damaging this Trojan Horse is.

make sure avg is all up to date.

disable system restore if you are running xp or windows me.if you dont do this avg will keep finding it and telling you that you are infected.

run a full scan with avg and delete dont heal.

re enable system restore again.

if avg can find it then its my guess it can also remove it too.

disable system restore :-)
