Dear Sirs,

Some how the Trojan virus has crept into the bootsector of my PC.

This has caused my computer to slow down and causes other inconveniences.

I had AVG anti-virus. It appears that this virus has come while using internet.

which is the best anti-virus that I can purchase and get it installed?

Mine is a Pentium IV.

Should I call an Engineer or is there any way I myself can do it?


Your reply/ advise will be appreciated.

Regards

RKR

Do you know the name of the Trojan? If you can identify the Trojan it would be easier to deal with it.

Dear All Sirs,


Thank you for the response. I shall try norton 2009, I think. Meanwhile, I want to PURCHASE a anti-virus, IF REQUIRED. So advise me on this.

I was told

QHEAL net edition is better
then there is CASPER or KASPER

Then AVG

Then I am now hearing about AVAST

Dear Mr. Suresh,

Thank you. Next time when I put on the computer, I shall note down the Trojan number and post it here.

Regards

Dear Mr. Suresh (and others)

The name of the virus is Trojan horse Generic17.CJG

The message I get (through AVG ) is

"Detected on open"

and is residing in E:\Windows\System32\msinfo.exe

Can I delete this file?

It gets into memory each time I boot my PC.


[The above information - Any use?]

Dear Sir
You can do the following


In control panel System >Turn off System Restore first. If not the Trojan will get into system again.
You can deal with it through AVG only. It will be removed & will not - hopefully- get back again
If necessary you get a Rootkit scanner via Google to check
AVG is good, Avast also. Both free versions are efficient
Use Firefox with NoScript for browsing

Hope this helps

Dear Mr. Naga,

It is nice of you for your kind and detailed reply. I shall try it in a day or two.

As I was unable to access Gconnect since yesterday afternoon, I could neither see your post nor reply earlier.


Thanks once again.

You are welcome. There is a good free program called Stinger. Download & run it. It detects almost all Trojans.
Good luck
