Haylp! Trojans!

Recently I have been having some problems with a couple of Trojans that I can't seem to get rid of. They have caused Chrome to crash a few times so have gone back to IE for the time being and have also deleted Limewire.

The files are TR/Dldr.Tracur.B.8 and TR/Drop.Agent.bkjy.

I use Avira as an antivirus and every time I boot up the comp it detects them no matter how many times I put them in quarantine.

Any ideas on what to do with this?

Thanks in advance

When you are up and running again, try using FrostWire, it seems a lot safer than LimeWire.

Avira if you can put up with a pop up advert once a day.

Avast anti-virus (http://www.avast.com/)
Superantispyware for malware scans (http://www.superantispyware.com/)
Blacklight rootkit scanner (http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/security/security-lab/tools-and-services/blacklight/)
CCleaner to clear the crap off your system (http://www.ccleaner.com/)
Defraggler to optimise data storage (http://www.piriform.com/defraggler)

All free and bloody good!

And make sure Windows auto-updates is turned on (some malware disables it).

Any problems, post again and I'll be glad to help. For health reasons I'm a civi IT analyst, so have a lot of experience with problems like viruses etc.

Chrome is great, Firefox also.

Right

Used Cloudbuster but it kept detecting a file and not doing anything about it, so I tried avast with the same result, it keeps flashing me with warnings but not doing any of the actions it's supposed to, delete, repair move to chest etc.

This is the message
C:\WINDOWS\System32\deskperf32.dll
Win32:Malware-gen
Virus/Worm

Any ideas on what to do with this?
Thanks

Surprised Malwarebytes didn't get it. Have you tried updating it and running it again?

Some filthy thing has got into my laptop and is redirecting any and all Google searches to 'http://gowebsearch.net/'. I resent this. Is this what others are getting? I thought that by buying Avira I wouldn't have all the issues that Norton and Kaspersky throw up, but it seems that it can't cope....

I think I might stick with Microsoft's free antivirus (i use it on my netbook without any problems so far).

Trying Malwarebytes now.

How did you get on?

Useless shyte. All of those 'free' solutions are just that. A run-through of Kaspersky, Avira and Microsoft Defender while I used another computer to work with seems to have cleared the bugger out; time will tell, of course.

When will the European Court of Human Rights award defendants death by excruciatingly painful means for this sort of crime? The sooner the better.

If it is not used for commercial purposes, the new avast is looking good: www.avast.com
