1. Run Deckard's System Scanner (DSS)

2. Run the vundo and combo fix

3. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

4. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot

5 Run Superantispyware

6. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!

There are several web sights for free programs that can do that. I'm not sure which will work for your system, but one such program is made by Lavasoft. It's called Ad-Aware SE.

AnswerYou can get rid of the Trojan horse , by following these steps .

If AVG detected a virus it will be storing it in the virus vault. Go into virus vault and opt to delete the virus. Virus vault can be accesed from the main menu.

AnswerMy AVG found Trojan Horse Dropper Generic, informed me and put it into the Virus Vault. (AVG said that it had 'healed' the virus ... oh yeah ?)I went into Virus Vault and manually deleted it by just using the 'Delete' button.Problem solved ... I think. So far, so good.- but the moment you run the scan, it will appear again.

no is there a software to delete it

Usually it will work, but sometimes it will be formed again. Although you delet it using AVG, it will form again and again. In this case, see the file's location, and delete it yourself.

If the virus are all in the virus vault, you are safe. i would recommend running a scan for more viruses. then if there aen't any you can safly remove the viruses. but before you do, make sure they didn't infect any important files.

I had this same problem with a computer at work. AVG 7.0 wouldn't heal the infected files automatically or move them to the Virus Vault. I moved the infected files into the Virus Vault myself. You can do this in AVG. Once in the Vault, you can delete them. Don't delete if they are critical or actual system files. The infected files were simply temporary Internet files, but because they were in Windows\Temporary Internet Files\IE content (Windows98), they read as system files and AVG wouldn't touch them. I ran another couple of scans after doing this and the machine was clear. Hope this helps.

Go to the vault and drag it into the trash can.

You can leave it there or empty the vault. Either way, you are safe.

When you moved the file to the AVG Virus Vault it was deleted from its original location, coded, and then saved in a non-executable file in a hidden folder. Your PC is no longer infected.If you are not missing any data file and your applications are running, then you can delete these vaulted files from the AVG Virus Vault. You can do it selectively: from AVG Virus Vault program-> select files -> right click on the selection -> Delete file(s).Or you can delete all AVG Virus Vault contents in one go: Open the AVG Control Center program -> right click on AVG Virus Vault component -> choose"Empty vault".

Depending on what Anti-Virus software you use will tell you where the virus is and also delete it and store it away in a vault. AVG one of the well known and partly free softwares that can be downloaded locates and can delete the virus. Hope this answers your question.

1. Disable System Restore "how to disable system restore" on google 2. Run AVG ( its free 3. Reboot 4. Renable System Restore Check your AVG vault for any viruses and delete them.

The free anti virus software AVG 6 was not effective on the first try although it did detect the virus which Norton antivirus did not. After using the Windows XP system restore to go back to a date before the virus had installed itself the AVG6 still detected the virus but also allowed me to delete it by using the AVG 6 Virus Vault Delete method.

IVE just updated my avg antivirus software and run it. It found downloader.briss and removed it to the virus vault.

All you need to do is collect the same items again .. and once you have all the 7 items, you can re-vault the collection and get bonus.

The purpose of the vault is to quarantine files that have been infected. In most cases, these are new files created by the virus or the actual virus itself, but certain viruses infect files that may be important to you. The vault allows you to quarantine the files so that they can be healed when a solution is found or submitted for analysis. In most cases you can simply delete vault files.

It there is no delete option in your virus vault then you will need to reinstall AVG If you are using Windows 7, the default directory will be C:\ProgramData\AVG...\DB Delete all files in here to erase all history of detection in the Resident Shield log. AVG says this cannot be done. I just did it.

I just ran a free scan with TREND MICRO Housecall 6.5 and got rid of it. In addition, it even fixes whatever mess this Trojan has left behind.

You need to run these 5 essential steps to remove all the spyware on your computer.1. Run Deckard's System Scanner (DSS)2. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware3.

Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!Install threat fire which will enhance your antivirus protectionAnswerHi, AVG 7 detected "Trojan horse dialer.22.AQ" on my machine 3 hours ago, but couldn't heal it nor put it in the virus vault. I tried everything: Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, Microsoft anti-spyware, AVG7, scanning in safe mode... nothing worked ! I even went back to an old restore point without succes.I finaly got rid of it by scaning with HouseCall free anti-virus ( it was scaning, AVG resident shield poped-up and i was able to put the Trojan dialer in AVG's virus vault. So i think it's the combination of those two Anti-virus that enabled me to fix this problem.Once it's in the vault, the dialer can no longer damage your system... you can safely leave it there and let AVG take care of it and delete it when it's old enough. If you wish to delete it from the vault before AVG does, you should at least wait a couple days to see if your system is runing properly.Hope this helpPat.AnswerI had the same Trojan and I saw this post. It helped me alot, because I tryed everything to even going to the registry and delete it from there...nothing... Runing AVG and Housecall at the same time was an awesome idee, with the only littel trick let Housecall finish first...than go to AVG since AVG finds only 1 infection ..and houscall finds 2 the secound is the trigger of the Trojan if you don't delete the trigger ( exe) you will get the Trojan back everytime. Great helping advice to Pat and this site..thx alot for the idee and good job....

hi. ^__^ well, my mom accidentally got that on her computer. ( aaah! ;__; ) i used the program AVG Free to get it off. ( it's an anti-virus program by the company "Grisoft". it comes highly recommended. ) first, right-click on Internet Explorer and delete your cookies, temporary internet files, and history. then, go to: and download the program. go through the setup steps, and run it. ( DON'T make a restore disk yet! it WILL have the downloader in the file if you do, so if you ever use it, you'll be reloading the Trojan on your computer! ) after you've run AVG Free once, it'll show you all the files that have the downloader in them. don't bother healing the files. just delete them. restart your computer. if you see that the "virus vault" (scroll down through the options; virus vault is at the bottom) has items in it, click once on the box that says "virus vault" and hit the button down at the bottom of the AVG screen to delete the items inside. now, run the virus scan again. this time, just in case the Trojan made its way into a restore file or you didn't delete all the files the first time, I'll take care of that. you should be fine at that point. remember, to keep your computer healthy, use AVG Free at least once a week. also, try using either/both "Spybot: Search and Destroy" and "Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition". these programs rid your computer of spyware/adware/assorted malware. (do not use in conjunction with the pay-program "Spy Sweeper", though. they don't work well together, as I've found.) also, if you are a more advanced user, i'd suggest the program "Hijack This!". it checks the BHO's and running processes of your computer for hijackers; use the site to translate that list of crap it'll give you. (copy and paste the logfile hijack this will save into that box and hit "analyze". it'll tell you what's good and what's bad and what needs to be updated." keep your computer running fast by using Disk Defragmenter (a windows utility) twice a month. happy hunting, and good luck! ^_____^!! <3, minue ( , if you have any questions.)

There are 7 vaults as follows: Vault 87 Vault 92 Vault 101 Vault 106 Vault 108 and Vault 112
