I have the Recycler virus. Having chosen to show the hidden files and folders in My Computer I can see it on both my external hard drives and my C drive. The problem is, I cannot even get my virus checker to detect it, let alone remove it!

I have scanned with AVG software and then followed the steps in the Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, but not even Malwarebytes has detected it and I do not know what else to do.

Malwarebytes scan shows:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.42
Database version: 3289
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11

Any advice on steps to remove it and prevent its recurrence would be greatly appreciated, nothing that I have found on the internet so far has done anything other than confuse me!

Thanks, Becky
