Just caught the virus called Trojan Horse Generic29.AHHS. The AVG detects it but cannot remove (access denied.) I tried to use the information on the Internet to try to remove the threat, but it was not very relevant, because, except for a very few registry entries, I haven't found anything: no files associated with this virus.
My computer seems to work normally, just as it did before the infection. I just have this AVG Resident shield window popping up from time to time saying that this virus found in two locations.
Any thoughts about this or any experience anyone has had with this virus?
Please use AVG Rescue CD and restore your MBR as described here (refer to Offline mode using AVG Rescue CD). Then, scan the system using AVG Rescue CD and remove detected threats.
Should the infection be still present after restart, please provide us with new GMER anti-rootkit scan result and new AVG full computer scan result export. Also, please provide us with a screenshot of your partition table listing as follows:
1. Run the AVG Rescue CD.
2. Switch to the linux terminal by the left ALT + F2 key combination.
3. Login as the root user.
4. Execute the fdisk -l command.
5. Take a picture of your screen and attach it to your reply.
6. Use the left ALT + F1 key combination to switch back to the AVG Rescue CD menu.
Here's a quote of what Cameron posted that helped me:
alright, here's what you're gonna do. first, go to your control panel. set your view to large icons, and click on folder options. go over to the 'View' tab, and make sure that the option to 'show all hidden files, folders and drives' is checked. then, download a program called RogueKiller from here:
http: //download. cnet. com/RogueKiller/3000-8022_4-75764640. html
open the program, wait for it to prescan, and then click scan and let it do its job. after it's done, make sure everything it found is checked, and then click delete.
you can close the program after that. now, go to your temp folder (you can just click on your username, click on AppData, local, and then temp), and delete everything in it (if it has anything in it), as you are supposed to do this at least once a month anyway.
if your computer still cannot delete a .exe because it is running, then look through whichever folder it's in and maybe do some more research on it.
I hope I've helped.
My win7 laptop has this virus and I'm trying to follow Cameron's advice in Brianh71 reply. When I try to download the Rogue Killer file I get a message from Windows Update (?) saying 'ARo2013_bt.exe contained a virus and was deleted'. Now what do I do?????
