My AVG detected a Trojan Horse that it says is embedded, it's called
Dropper Agent Counter. What can I do about this? I'm running all the spyware
and do virus scans every day. Here is a Highjack Log. Thanks for the help.

If possible remove Web_Rebates under Add/remove Software.

Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O23 - Service: ISEXEng - Unknown - C:\WINDOWS\System32\angelex.exe (file missing)

Reboot into safe mode and delete:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\4p10xa.exe

Then surrf to http://www.kaspersky...anforvirus.html and have this file checked:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\prqtect.exe

Let us know the results.

Hello, I did as you suggested but did'nt find the program WEB_REBATES
in add/remove programs. Go rid of the other things with Highjack and did not see the file C:\Windows\System32\prqtect.exe while in safe mode.
I went on-line and did the scan for virus and it told me that was ok.
Here is my new log.

I don't like the fact that it is:
- hiding
- an unknown filename (at least to me)
- double in your running processes
- a few entries in your log being stubborn.

Could you mail me that file for analysis?

First make hidden files visible:
http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=192
Mail a (preferably zipped) copy to pieterATwilderssecurity.org (replace AT with @)

Pieter

Hello, I've made all files to be shown but it still does'nt show when
I do a search. I just ran AVG again and there are 5 vires in the vault.
Are they hurting anything? Can I still get rid of them to have a clean
computer? Help Help.

As long as your AntiVirus has them in the vault they won't hurt anyone.

To zip files in XP:
-rightclick a empty space in an explorer window of the folder where you want to -create the file
-choose new
-choose compressed file
-name it malware.zip (or anything else ending with the .zip extension)
-copy and paste the file you want to zip into that folder
