  1. Hello
    my pc has been infected with the js /downloader.agent trojan and it keeps popping up on my avg everytime i visit any page.

    Location of the trojan (as per AVG) is:
    E:\Documents and Settings\Ankush\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\

    I have followed the 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions as per techspot. The trojan seemed to have been deleted yesterday but has reappeared today.
    I am attaching the log files of HJT, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware

    Kindly advise me on how to proceed

    Thanking you in anticipation

    Welcome to TS. You can take credit for keeping on top of things. Just give a little more attention to details and this should become a distant memory.

    HJT scan results – Decision to fix is at the discretion of the user.
    HJT Usage: Scan, tick the box, click 'fix'. Exit. Restart Computer.

    Observation: More progress is needed. Your logs show found but unanswered items. ‘NO Action’ or ‘Delete on Reboot’ appearing in the log, requires that you react to the message.

    Genreal Remark: - React to unanswered items appearing in scan logs
    • NO Action’ - Remove Selected when offered by MBAM
    • 'Delete on Reboot’ - Restart the computer after concluding the scan
    Proceeding along a typical path.
    • Update both MBAM & SAS. Rerun them both.
    • This effort is complete when logs report NO infections/threats, or reporting something it can not clean.
    • Restart the computer. Scan with HJT.
    • Posts logs. Report progress & what changes are observed.
