  1. Hi AVG Virus scanner picked this trojan up straight away when i accidently downloaded a dodgy file. It is in the virus vault. Does this mean that it is fully quarantined and cannot effect my computer? How can i delete it permanently?

    I can`t find any info on the Trojan horse Downloader.Generic6.QJU.

    Are you sure you`ve typed it correctly?

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    Attached log1

    I also searched the net for similar infections but I couldn't fin anything exact.
    I double checked and that is definitely the correct name.
    Attached is the log.

    Your HJT log is clean, though you should have HJT fix the following entry.

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

    What file does AVG say is infected with this supposed trojan?

    Regards Howard :)

    Do you have Quickbooks installed? If not, have AVG delete that file.

    If you do have it installed, then it`s likely a false positive and you should restore the file from the virus vault.

    I tried downloading quickbooks from daily keys which was a bad move but I purchased a licence and quicken was friggin me around so i thought id just try download it, opps. so I don't have quickbooks installed on the computer but i plan to eventually when all the mess is sorted out. so should i still delete the file in AVG? i wouldn't want it to effect the program in the future if it is likely to do so.
    attached fresh hijackthis log.

    HJT logs from safe mode are no good.

    Yes, delete the file from AVG`s virus vault.

    Regards Howard :)
