    Default Trojan Virus

    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

    RKR

    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?]

    Regards (to all)

    Dear Sir
    You can do the following
    1. In control panel System >Turn off System Restore first. If not the Trojan will get into system again.
    2. You can deal with it through AVG only. It will be removed & will not - hopefully- get back again
    3. If necessary you get a Rootkit scanner via Google to check
    4. AVG is good, Avast also. Both free versions are efficient
    5. 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
