I performed the Full Scan and AVG found this:

"";"C:\ProgramData\Tarma Installer\{889DF117-14D1-44EE-9F31-C5FB5D47F68B}\_Setupx.dll";"Adware Generic5.FVQ";"Potentially dangerous object"

There is nothing on either Gmer's rootkit or autostart scan. MSInfo is attached.

What should I do next?

Thank you

Hi M_tonho,

The Tarma Installer is a tool for developers to distribute their software. So this is a False Positive. And specifically, it is the _Setupx.dll file that is being detected. This file is accessing privileged areas of the system to perform the install, so that's why it is being flagged as a "Potentially dangerous object".

Please submit the _Setupx.dll file file as described in the top section of this Post: Handling False Positive, hopefully the AVG data base will be updated.

If your not a developer, you should be able to perform a standard Program Remove to delete the package from your system. If you are using this software, then you will need for AVG to add this file to their exceptions list.
