Serious AVG Problem

  brambles 13:40 12 May 05

My computer screen is showing Fatal Error caused by Trojan-Spy.Html smitfraud.c & says run AntiVirus & spyware.
First ran Microsoft Spyware Found 4 errors
Next ran Search & destroy Found 4 DSO
Then updated & ran AVG
Found 2973 infected items - HEALED
Closed down restarted ran again & found more
Test 2 292, Test 3 452, Test 4 529, Test 5 334,
Test 6 490.

Because the problem is ongoing The AVG VIRUS DETECTED! box will not close down.

It looks exceptional but I wanted to see if there were any other avenues before I seek Professional help.

brambles have you tried turning off System Restore, restarting in Safe Mode and running your AV? You might find that the virii are hiding in System Restore.

Thank you gudgulf & bosmere - I will try turning off system restore & I have looked at the solution given by gudgolf. I'm not certain I'll be capable of doing it I've downloaded all the programmes mentioned. The thing that bothers me is I did try getting into Safe Mode but the computer is Windows Media 2005 & I seemed to be presented with a lot of lined text rather than the GUI I was expecting.

Once again thanks - do we know how I have inherited this problem?
