Still show traces of trojan?

Unread postby judyplantz » October 6th, 2009, 9:00 pm

I may sound like I don't know what I am talking about - sure, I know nothing about viruses.


A few days ago I was running a scan with AGV Free, the scan results show that I had a trojan horse virus. I am sorry I do not remember what the first one was. It was in there twice. When I went to remove it, I felt that it was time to update my AVG Free to the new version. I wasn't thinking and deleted the old AGV Free; so I unfortunately don't have a copy of the original virus name. After I ran the new AVG Free I saw that next I had two of the Trojan Horse Agent.2TTX show up in the scan.

What I did next was run Malware Bytes, AVG Free, and Spybot S & D; then I ran them all in Safe mode. That was yesterday. Today my AVG Free scan shows that I have a Trojan Horse Downloader.Banload.APJF, it shows as being on a Firefox Setup file. With that said, I ask your help to determine if the infection is actual, and how do I remove it permanently?

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
