Hello. I had a pesky trojan on my computer that kept popping up with the XP Security tool alias. In the task manager the virus showed up as proccess ave.exe I researched a lot of information and I downloaded Malware bytes in order to get rid of it. Malware bytes found12 problems then I removed them, Rebooted my PC, then turned my restore on and off, then cleaned temporary internet files and other saved information. After about 4 hours it all came back again and worse. I did the process again the same exact way and this time it seemed to be successful, except a day later i started getting this Win32 Generic host error. At first i thought maybe I had messed up the registry but I'm wondering if this is part of the trojan. The ave.exe is not running any more, but I get the win32 error randomly while on the internet. It does not come up immediately when I start firefox, but maybe 3 hours later. Sometimes it prevents the sound from flash sites, and other times it doesn't seem to have any effect. I am concerned that this problem will get worse and cause other issues. Please Help.
