Hi Folks!
I am continually being told by AVG - my anti-virus (about every two hours) that I have '' on my computer. It tells me that if I run it, then it will remove it for me - then it promptly fails to do so. I have had other varients of this before and they have always been easy to remove manually. With this one, I turn off any suspicious looking programs in taskmanager; go to 'run' and type in msconfig and do the same there. Then go into system32/restore where it is usually lurking> boot it out, only to have it back again the next time I come to the computer. Could anyone help please. Cheers. Floyd
