I opened a file that as sent to me yesterday in the form of a link to a picture. Not 5 mins after that, AVG Free Edition popped up with a file infected with a trojan horse. I've run AVG, McAffee, and Ad-Aware, and all 3 programs have found and quarantined the file, but I am unable to remove it. I've been getting random popups, from Anti-Virus programs and sites and have had stuff start to download to my computer. In addition it has been running really slowly. I would appreciate any and all help that you may be able to give me. Thanks.

Hi yuriko18,

* Search for HijackThis.exe in google and download it.
* Save HijackThis.exe to your desktop.
* Create a new folder named HijackThis to your desktop. Move Hijackthis.exe into that folder.
* Then rename HijackThis.exe to Scanner.exe
* Run Scanner.exe
* Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file -button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
* Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
* Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
* Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
* DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
