Hi there, Total noob here...been researching these forum for ages now to find a solution. AVG anti-virus is endlessly battling "Trojan Horse Crypt.AQLW". 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. From my research on your forums, I followed the 5 step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions --> Very awesome, thanks for it. Only problem is I get to running the DDS, it briefly flash's a page that disappears. No log/s is created. I disabled my AVG when doing this but it still does this. I successfully created logs for MBAM and GMER, I shall post those results in my next message. But want to know what I must do now with DDS not working? Is there a way to get DDS running? Or should I use another program? Would GREATLY appreciate any direction on this...very worried about this trojan. :grinthumb Thanks in advance for any help.
