AVG 7.5 Found Trojan Virus But Updates Only Go Up To 2008

I have 182 gb free on my hard drive and 2 gb of ram. Reply Mark O'Neill April 29, 2008 at 5:24 pm It gives you the OPTION to install the Yahoo toolbar. ruby - SUPERantispyware found nothing either. Next I downloaded and ran Ad-Aware, which found another DIFFERENT trojan. navigate here

To bad really like AVG. When it booted up and Windows started, I got a "Security Center" window telling me about a trojan (Zlob.G to be precise) that had been detected. But even without the complete install, I'm able to get a full system scan going in safe mode. I may be too radical, but I consider ANY unwanted software spyware. https://securityandthe.net/2008/11/10/avg-virus-scanner-removes-critical-windows-file/

Thanks for your post. If The tech support cannot answer any of my emails for several days I would think it reasonable to assume they are so busy and back logged with countless problems from Just my thoughts. Then they said, no more updates for 7.5 upgrade to 8.0, so I did.

Disabling it (the Linkscanner component) left my AVG system tray icon in an permanent error-warning state. I installed it and found map Trust no exe in c:\windows, but I do not know how to open control panel. zOMG your computer is now AT RISK!! My HP laptop ran so slow, it was like molasses in January.

but then i think,if that was the case,we wouldn't have these little gatherings on a site like this,where we could read about peoples issues with things they get for free,and how any thoughts?

What can we do now? Based on everything I know about AVG, I made the recommendation to the readers that AVG is the best anti-virus software.

Speaking of which, I came across this… AVG virus scanner removes critical Windows file | Security and the Net […] Lance November 11th, 2008 at 4:07 pm If you can boot I am using KM1.5a2. AVG found one trojan (not zlob, but i forget which), and removed it, but that didn't seem to fix it. It removed several files and now won't boot.

I would, however, make a backup of the 1.5b2 directory before you copy the other over just in case. John Murphy November 30th, 2008 at 12:05 pm I can't thank you enough!

Thank you for your post.

Update 3: A reader suggested Avira as another alternative free virus scanner; I've never heard of it, but you can check it out here. I've got Win XP Pro, 1 GB RAM and 80 GB HD so your results might be different.

Avoid AVG at all cost, such errors (blunders) are simply unforgiveable. I read up on Zlob, and I don't see the typical Zlob system processes in my windows Task Manager. Surely crashed tens of thousands of computers.
