    Unhappy Trojan

    Am new to site, so forgive my not knowing where to post this.

    A couple of days ago I got a trojan on my Vister(I know, I know!) system. Ran the AVG scan and it showed...

    C:\Windows\explorer.exe <1424> :memory -00010000 Trojan horse Agent_.xj

    Also same as above without the memory portion and same thing in my file manager, PDExplorer.

    Did a regedit and didn't find these addresses.
    It has wreaked havoc on my system. How do I get rid of this demon????

    I would start with MalewareBytes (free version works quite well) and Super Antispyware. You might do a Google search for the named trojan to see what other tools might be available. Did the AVG scan offer to help get rid of the demon?

    Some of the online scanners might help:
    House Call
    ESET
    Norton
    Bit Defender

    and many others.
