  1. Hello yesterday whilst using facebook I received a mail from a friend telling me that I looked hilarious in this video I clicked on the link and ofcourse it took me to a fake youtube site and I managed to download a virus.

    My Norton 360 doesn't seem to pick it up, however when I run Avast it finds a
    JS:Agent-CV[Trj} in location C;\windows\temp if i delete it and reboot my pc it simply comes back.

    I've run the 8 steps sugested that are on this site under topic58138 ive attached the logs for two of the programs and the Superantispyware which i cant find the log for has quarantined
    adware.E404 Helper/Hij
    Rouge.Component/trace
    trojan.downloader/Zlob

    Any advice on how to clean up my computer and also what security precautions I should take would very greatfully accepted.

    Thanks
