Hi

a few days ago, AVG found trojan horse dowloader.swizzor.bl and healed the file. I had a message today syaing that this is back, however, I have done a search in both Ask jeeves and google but found no listing ANYWHERE!? I have checked my AVG log and I have spelt it right. Anybody know anything at all about this and what these downloaders do?

Thanks
Boo

I tried to do this, but the page will not load up from the link. I went back into the other thread from you and tried the link. I just tried the one here aswell and same problem.

Thanks

escan came up clean, but only an hour or so, a pop up box came up telling me that the trojan downloader.swizzor.bl was on my pc and that I needed to scan with AVG.... nothing is being found on the scans though... ?

I am rather puzzled

Have you tried running all your current anti-spyware and anti-virus software in safe mode? (Boot up and press F8 before Windows loads and select it from menu that appears.)

Hi

I did all of the scans in safe mode (except AVG which would not find the path) but I run spybot and a2 and both came up clean. However I have had another message saying the following

AVG Resident Shield
Trojan horse Downloader.Swizzor.BL

is found in file
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{54459E15-55F2-4FB6-97AC-964E1E347A74}\RP26\A0004390.exe

To remove this virus please run AVG for Windows.

Thanks for any response
