System Alert: Trojan-Spy.win32@mx

  1. My computer is displaying this alert from the system tray: System Alert: Trojan-Spy.win32@mx. There are a number of other issues as well, such as the unintentional installation of "Security Toolbar 7.1". I see that this has been addressed in other threads as well. Any suggestions?

    I have run AVG anti-spyware and have attatched the report.

    Thank you!

    Your system is infected with malware.

    Malware infections can lead to identity theft, loss of funds from bank accounts, misuse of credit card information, etc since they can send sensitive information from your computer to their creators. Please read this thread before deciding what course of action to take regarding your infection.

    If, after reading the above thread, you decide to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, ComboFix, and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above. Also post here the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards :)
