Hi again Chaps, This morning on powering up, I got a virus alert pop-up from AVG (never let me down in the past..). It seems to replicate itself! Each time I 'heal', it tells me its healed successfully, and put into quarentine. This is happening say every 4 minutes? I've emptied the quarentine 3 times now, with about 5 of these nasties each time, all the same, all from the directX file! I've turned off sys restore, gone into safe mode, (before that d/loaded a bit of s/w suggested in another thread I looked up on PCA - it's called A-Squared security).done full scans with both this s/w and AVG - only AVG detected it. Restarted in normal mode, AVG'd it again, and AGAIN it's detected it!! Can't seem to get rid of the damned thing!
Its a Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic2.FMM. It's in C:Windows\System32\DirectX\calco.exe. So it's called calco.exe. I've tried looking on google for this calco.exe and can't find anything!! I'm pretty worried now, as I can't see how to get rid of it.
Just looked in Object details in AVG vault - this is what it says::
You could try click here there is a free version and it is supposed to be able to remove this,apparently it can remane itself to calcc.dll and this is the file that changes to:calcc.dll as Win32/TrojanDropper.Small.NDQ,all this taken from click here.
thanks - I've had no reappearance of AVG virus reports that were appearing every couple of minutes, so I guess I've got rid of it! I turned off sys restore then re started in safe mode - did lots of scans (different s/w) and I think it all did the trick!
Thanks all again,
