  1. Hello,

    My avg found a trojan horse downloader.generic7.igx.

    I regularly use my computer for banking. I need to get rid of this trojan as quickly as possible. I have had the program for a long time and from all of the past virus scans I never received a threat.

    I have read many different forums and you guys are the best out of all the rest.

    Can someone please help me get rid of this trojan.

    Thank you

    I also found the Trojan Horse Downloader on my computer. I have no idea how to get rid of it either. I have no experience when it comes to computers. I'm hoping someone could help, or atleast lead me in the right direction.

    That is a generic name and the fix usually requires specific instructions, but go ahead and do the following then we can go from there.

    Please have a read here-> Is your system infected? Read this before Cleaning or Formatting

    If you decide to clean your system please follow these Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and post back in this thread with the requested logs. There should be at least 3.
