My AVG found a Virus and I don't know how to fix this. It says:
Trojan horse downloader. small 21.BQ
Trojan horse downlader, infected, archive
c:\ied_s7.cab:\ied_s7_c_7.exe
c:\ied_s7.cab
What do I do to get this off my system. I thought AVG would do something, but apparently it doesn't quarantine it. I also have Ad-aware, but I haven't run anything until I find out what to do. Please help. Thanks.

Hi princess,

Have you tried deleting the cab-file manually?

Find c:\ied_s7.cab
Rightclick the file
Press the SHIFT key
In the rightclick choose Delete
When prompted if you are sure click Yes

Regards,

Pieter

Thank You Pieter,
I haven't done anything yet (except gasp a lot). I've been very lucky until now in not having had many problems with my machine. I'll follow your suggestions and let you know how I make out. Thanks again.

Thanks again. I did what you said, and I seem to be OK now. I ran Ad-aware and did another AVG scan and it doesn't show any viruses now.

You're welcome. :tazz:

Maybe AVG tried to remove ied_s7_c_7.exe from the cab file and didn't succeed.
There was no need to keep the rest of it however. It's all part of the Trojan.

This program was very likely put on your computer using ActiveX.
Check the site in my signature to see if you can protect your computer better.

Regards,

Pieter
