Removing Trojan

My brother is a *** and has put a trojan on my laptop which means everytime i click a link or a google link it opens up a virus site. I have tried clearning it with AVG but it wouldn't. I used trend micro housecall but that got stuck on step 2 for hours even after it finished scanning.

Any idea what to try next?

Anymore help please?

tip for the future. AVG free sucks.
use something like ESET Nod32 or Smart Security.

free AV progs are free for a reason.
they're like the bits of pasty that Greggs give you for free. its just a taster.

If it is Trojan Vundo,it's a pain to get rid of but would try Malwarebytes Anti malware as already suggested. Run it in safe mode too.Nortons as a free d/l for Trojan Vundo but it don't even touch it so don't waste your time with that.

I then had to wipe the restore points to get rid of mine fully,just sounds a bit like Vundo to me the way you say an anti virus thing pops up,but I expect there 1000's of variations and I'm not really that good with computers.

I was messing about litrally for days trying get my computer sorted. I called up a local computer shop and asked them about it,they said Vundo I won't get rid of and told to wipe computer,reformat etc and they could do it for me for £40/45 but eventually did get rid. I even considered that I not bother with it and get a new 1 but I really like this 1 and reckon I'll have it for a few more years yet.

If it is trojon vundo what you have to do is Go to start > Run and type msconfig That way you can stop it running at startup. Next reboot and use a virus scanner, it should find and destroy it.

So what AV product had you got at the time you got the trojan?

I noticed you said you are using AVG free in another thread. You're just asking to get infected again using that these days.

people think its great until they find they've had a virus going undetected for yonks!

The truth about AVG:

AVG detection rate only 82% this is very poor.
AVG stands for Anti Virus Guard however AVG does not guard
AVG fails a simple virus test namely this one:
http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_fil…
AVG 8 eats memory this will slow down your PC.
AVG is well known for missing viruses because of it poor detection rate.

is avg free the best antivirus software to have on my computer at home? NO

Both Free Avast or Free Avira are better, if you look at detection rates Free Avast 86%, Free Avira over 94%, both free Avast & Free Avira guard, both free Avast & Free Avira pass the virus test, both free Avast & Free Avira use less memory than AVG.

It been the free edition but at end of day big companies get viruses past their systems. It was 1st problem we ever had on this computer. My partner had been d/l from torrents and certain it come about from those.
As I already said I'm not up on computers but I never get any bother at moment.I've used Avira and Avast too,one them the 1 with the umbrella icon,I do run various things from time to time.

hi it is best to see if one f your friends has an external drive with portable antivirus on or a usb stick with malware spybot on then run it from there my son had i dont know how many when he pressed a button a load of stuff came on also his control panel dissapeared. I had to keep trying with the external until it could open the portable antivirus's then ran them picked up straight away.

I then ran what is called trojan remover it was great it took it all away. Hope it helps
