AVG Notice

I received a notice from AVG that I had a virus on my computer, and AVG continues to say it is still there, when COMODO says it is not.

What should I do?

It says:

Trojan Horse Generic 12AHIJ

I have attached a copy of the picture that says what was found.

Hello John. at the end of that trojan horse it shows a tag “.Gen” this means that this is a generic detection. The best thing to do would be to submit that file to www.virustotal.com and find out if it’s infected or if it’s a false positive.

Please submit the file to VirusTotal to confirm if it’s malicious or not :slight_smile:

Kyle !!! >:( ;D

P.S. You can also submit the file here http://camas.comodo.com/cgi-bin/submit :slight_smile:

I uninstalled AVG, and then re-installed it, and the system (AVG) now says “WORM/AUTORUN.INF”

See the attached pic.

Why does COMODO not see this?

How can I submit this, when it does not look to be a file?

Hello John, The simple answer is that No AV detects everything, Comodo may detect some AVG misses and AVG might detect some comodo misses.


I cannot seem to get rid of the thing… AVG says that it cannot be removed, and then says that if I elect to move it that i might end up with an operating system that does not work properly.

So, how do I get rid of this thing?

I have Vista, and use Firefox primarily. :BNC

Autoruns in the main harddisk can be safely deleted. A harddisk doesn’t need an autorun to boot to windows. The warning it says is because if the autorun was like in a USB for example and you delete the autorun. The file that was suposed to execute as soon as the usb is connected won’t work automatically. You’ll have to open the file yourself.

As for the infections you seem to have. Download superantispyware and Malwarebytes and do a scan. You should be clean afterwards. If not, then inform what happened

John did you submit it to virustotal? and what were the results?
