AVG anti-virus is endlessly battling "Trojan Horse Crypt.AQLW"

  1. Hello,

    I think I saw another thread in this forum detailing a similar problem, but since I don't seem to have posting rights there I decided to create a thread of my own. Logs from two programs were asked for in that thread, so I've attempted to have them available before posting. The "awsMBR" log file is provided below, abut sadly I wasn't able to get "BTKR_RunBox" to run. After it downloads the files it needs I am prompted to press any key, and when I do so it downloads again and prompts me to press any key, this continues endlessly.

    The symptoms of my problem: AVG Free anti-virus continues to identify and remove files which are classified as "Trojan Horse Crypt.AQLW" from time to time. The names of the files vary, but most are detected in the "Windows\system32\" directory. Other than that my system is currently operational, albeit occasionally appears to be slowed down. I'd appreciate help with the issue before it gets any worse.

    The "awsMBR" log:

    You may start your own thread. But you cannot help others. And you should also not follow directions given to others.

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow these steps: Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal.

    NOTE: If you already have any of the scanning programs on the computer, please remove them and download the versions in these links.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .
    NOTE: Logs must be pasted in the replies. Attached logs will not be reviewed.
    My Guidelines: please read and follow:
    • Be patient. Malware cleaning takes time. I am also working with other members while I am helping you.
    • Read my instructions carefully. If you don't understand or have a problem, ask me. Follow the order of the tasks I give you. Order is crucial in cleaning process.
    • If you have questions, or if a program doesn't work, stop and tell me about it. Don't try to get around it yourself.
    • File sharing programs should be uninstalled or disabled during the cleaning process..
    • Observe these:
      [o] Don't follow directions given to someone else
      [o] Don't use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you.
