    Trojan 10.hjf

    Removal is AVG Delete file (to quarantine) not try to clean file

    Did AVG give you the filename and location?

    Hi kimsland,
    not I remember, it told me to delete the rar file which I did and also to empty me re- bin which I also did. but when I run avg it tells me i still have the trojan :eek:(

    Open AVG; single click on the virus vault, and select empty
    Turn off System Restore (this will remove all restore points on your computer)
    Start-->Control Panel-->System-->System Restore

    Download CCleaner and remove all temporary files

    Confirm AVG is updated

    Either run a new scan,
    Go to Start-->Search-->Maximize the window-->All files and folders-->More Advanced Options-->
    Select to tick "Search Hidden and system files and folders
    In the all or part of the filename (box) type *.rar
    In the "Look In" box, confirm C drive
    --> search
    Hopefully AVG will pick it up

    Hi kimsland,
    sorry about the time delay, tried what you said but I am afraid every time avg does a scan it says I still have the trojan :eek:(
    thanks for your help though
