AVG has given me a warning a couple of times the last few days about the threat as mentioned in the title. I've had a thread similar to this one(i think that it was adware generic5.src) a few weeks ago but i followed a few tutorials on the internet like this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCcjF1zqVkQ. I deleted the files that were mentioned and tried to fix the rootkits but i dont have much knowledge about rootkits and couldnt find(and delete) those files and perphaps that is because i dont know anything at all about rootkits. So I thought the virus was gone because the warnings dissappeared but now i get these warnings(Adware Generic5.WON.dropper)and i dont know what to do about it. Ive noticed that my laptop is slower than usual but i dont know if that has anything to do with it but i cant notice any other symptoms. I have to admit that i dont have much knowledge about these things and i hope that u can help me.
